Design: Andrea De Luca
Project Type: Produced, Commercial Work
Location: Florence, Italy
Packaging Contents: Plant Galls
Packaging Substrate / Materials: Wood, paper, brass
Printing Process: Digital Printing

I’ve created this box after I’ve found these galls in a wood. They were so beautiful with their red rust colored shades and I’ve decided to give them a story, something like an ancient archeological find. The most important thing was the weathering: I wanted every pieces to look old, used, aged, dirty. Wood, brass pieces, and paper labels have been aged by using natural material such as coffee and vinegar.

As an illustrator I focused on paper labels to make the story as real as possible, using dates, signatures, tags, and stamps.

Thanks to my father for the big help with woodwork.

What’s Unique?
This is an unique box because it is totally handmade. There are natural rare galls inside, and fine designed labels.
