Das Korn

Designed by kakoii, Berlin and Tokyo.

It as an alcoholic spirit called “Korn” (wheat distilled liquor) which is more or less the German equivalent of the Russian Vodka. We designed the product (shape & graphic design) for the artist Theo Ligthart who launched it as an artwork on the international Art Show “Art Forum” in Berlin.

Since then “Das Korn” is a big success not only in premium bars throughout the country but also in many cultural locations. The design is very minimalistic and shows wheat grains – as also the name “Das Korn” means exactly what it’s made of (“wheat grain”).
