    Harrogate: Every bottle a gem

      From wallflower to belle of the ball

      It’s like something out of a fairy-tale: the British bottler Harrogate Spring Water LTD in 2014 discontinued its previous simple bottle design – and is now enchanting consumers with new bottles in an upmarket diamond look.

      Krones’ designers were asked to help in creating this magical metamorphosis. So they slipped into the role of the fairy godmother, and tailored responsively sparkling robes for Harrogate’s products.

      The idea:
      The diamond as the central design element

      • reflects light and fascinates the eye
