‘Le, Ludwig, Oscar & Tadao’ - Architecture Edition by Kaffepur
The philosophy of iconic modernist architects translated into the finest coffee
Packaging design for Kaffeepur (Swiss coffee roastery) and their special ‘Architecture Edition’. The first four different blends of the edition are dedicated to iconic modernist architects such as Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Oscar Niemeyer and Tadao Ando.
Inspired by aforementioned architects Kaffeepur’s owner and coffee roast master Angelo Stäldi developed each blend carefully trying to interpret the individual’s aesthetics and philosophy by translating it into a unique coffee experience. Kaffeepur has branches in Zurich and Berlin.
Gandl’s packaging concept and design is inspired by the ‘international style’ era using a customized version of his recenlty released NB-International™ Pro typeface as the main design element. Containers of solid squarish cardboard boxes with an elegant oxidized black metal lid are designed to house the valuable blends safely. These robust boxes can be stapled and used as building blocks for houses almost. ‘Edition Architecture’ is available in 400g and 800g units.
Edition Architecture is exclusively available in special museum shops (i.e.: ARCAM Amsterdam) as well as in Kaffeepur’s very own flagship store in Berlin.
