Folding box for an Inox vegetable press (from Graphis Packaging 4)
Nice folding carton with orthographically-projecting product illustrations. (See: Packaging & Orthographic Graphic Design)
Usually I can find out a bit more, but this Pinti Inox box has proven pretty resistant to research. Every other photo on page 190 of Graphis Packaging 4 includes artist, designer, art director and agency. This photo only includes client, Pinti Inox.
Looks to me like a frying pan, but it says “passaverdura” on the side of the box. Search for “passaverdura” on Google, however, and you find very different looking apparatus with a crank.
Cannot find any information on who actually designed this box, but Pinti Inox does appear to have manufactured some frying pans…
In the middle of the 1960’s with the second generation of the Pinti family, the company attained the role of unquestionable leader of cutlery and pans. New production ranges of pans and tableware were introduced, taking advantage of the new industrial location in Sarezzo.
Curiously, in the same 1984 book — on the same page — there were black and white photos showing 4 other boxes with orthographically-projecting product illustrations…
Folding boxes for bottles, jugs and a new teapot with heater marketed by Boda (from Graphis Packaging 4)
M & E, Melin and Österlin, came over the decades to be recognized and celebrated for their innovative graphic design. Especially during the 1950s and ’60s synthesis signature M & E everywhere on ads, posters, packaging — almost like a brand. Definitely as a quality brand.
The duo’s work is often described as groundbreaking… They created the packaging for Boda glassworks which caused a sensation at the world exhibition in New York.
Color photos of Österlin’s illustrations and orthographically-projecting package design can be found online…
