Hypothetical Icelandic homewares brand and luxury teapot packaging.

Coldera is an Icelandic homewares brand which makes its wares from volcanic rock. Inspired by Scandinavian interior design, this is a keepsake box that the consumer could place on their kitchen shelf or bench top.
The timber component is made from Scandinavian birch, the exterior box board slip case has a uv varnish and the teapot is secured by a layer of thick
pressed wool.

The coldera logo is a custom word mark which is based on the geological forms for which Iceland is known, it communicates a contemporary, creative and unique brand.

What’s Unique?
What makes this packaging unique is the simple timber lid mechanism which keeps the teapot secure during transit.
