Nostalgi is a hat and shoe rack, now considered a Swiss furniture classic, designed by Gunnar Bolin in 1937 and manufactured by Essem. Taking its cues from Essem’s functionalist past and artisanal manufacturing processes, Stockholm based graphic and product design studio Bedow, developed a packaging solution for Nostalgi that contrasts two vastly different sizes of Futura, reflecting the products bold, iconic style and attention to detail, set across an uncoated, unbleached substrate as a single colour print treatment that neatly draws together the aspects of art, craft and modernistic design principles. The off-the-edge type bleed is a nice reference to the modular and extendable nature of the product that really compliments the width of the packaging.
