Sibir Vodka is a high-end bottle concept for a premium vodka that finds its visual inspiration in the theme of Russian Icebreakers and borrows its name from the existing icebreakers as well, several Russian ships have been named the same. The aesthetics are aggressively leaning forward as if they were shattering the frozen waters of the far north.
Execution of the bottle would be glass metallized in a gradient. The cap would be made of a plated zamak, with plastic sealing. The cap blends with the bottle creating an uninterrupted visual impression. The plaque is a separate part of the design, it would be glued onto the glass surface. The logotype rises from the plaque in a relief and has a glossy, polished surface, while the rest of the plaque is sandblasted or etched to reach the rough, grainy contrasting surface.
Richness of used materials and executions and their combination that serves narrative of the theme.
