New York-based French designer Catherine Malandrino has teamed up with Cointreau to create a limited edition of their iconic “Objet d’ Art” liqueur bottle.  It is the first time the 160-year old design has been reinterpreted.  The collaboration, infused with Malandrino’s celebrated fresh and empowered fashion approach, has resulted in the prestigious 2009 Silver Pentaward for package design

 

“I wanted to dress the Cointreau bottle using the same codes I use when dressing a woman – lightness, transparency and femininity.  I wanted to create a timeless piece.  A piece that defies time with its codes and represents liberty and independence, but also a message for all women around the world.”
 
The Malandrino for Cointreau Limited Edition bottle design, featuring the iconic Statue of Liberty and a constellation of stars, pays homage to a tale of two cities:  Paris and New York.  It is Catherine’s signature love-note to her two soul cities, representing shared passions, boundless energy and unique design.
