Crystal Head Vodka

We got a Crystal Head Vodka in the office! ;)

Because of it's skull shaped bottle, a Crystal Head Vodka is now part of Sonny's growing collection of skulls in our studio.

"Crystal Head is vodka like no other, for a life like no other. An exploration of extraordinary people, places, and ingredients. Beginning with an archaeological mystery dating back thousands of years, we arrive at the deep, glacial waters of Newfoundland, Canada. We continue on to discover the unique crystals of Herkimer, New York before finally making our way into the hands of unique individuals like yourself. And of course, this isn't the end of the story. It's the start of a new one."

The Legend

A controversial archaeological mystery, 13 crystal heads have been found in regions around the world, from the American southwest to Tibet. They’re dated between 5,000 and 35,000 years old, and were supposedly polished into shape from solid quartz chunks over a period of several hundred years. Although according to Hewlett Packard engineers, they bear no tool marks to tell us exactly how they were made.
The heads are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them, and as such stand not as symbols of death, but of life.

The Founders

Dan Aykroyd is a well-known actor, musician, entrepreneur and spiritualist; a believer in what he calls the "invisible world" where otherworldly presences are a "form of reality as valid as our normal reality." Partner and veteran fine artist John Alexander has exhibited extensively in the United States and around the world. Together, they were avid researchers of the legend of the 13 crystal heads. And from this inspiration, an idea was born.

The Bottle

Aykroyd and Alexander wanted the opportunity to get closer to the myth of the 13 crystal heads. After more than two years in development, their moment finally arrived. When their glass depiction of a head was complete, Milan-based manufacturer Bruni Glass declared it to be a bottle of unsurpassed complexity and quality. Now, what to put in it? Vodka became the drink of choice. But with it, a commitment to do something enlightened and different.

Skull Style: Skulls In Contemporary Art And Design 

Got into skulls because of my best bud Sonny. We now have a growing collection of skulls in our studio. Fascinated with this symbol of the occult, I also did a couple of skull sculptures before called "Dead Red" and "Imagibation" for an exhibition in Secret Fresh Gallery.

Naora 2012 Limited Edition Flavor | Nespresso

Thanks Ino Caluza for bringing me some of the new Naora capsules!
 
"The latest Nespresso Limited Edition Grand Cru, Naora, was made possible thanks to a two-year-long collaboration between Nespresso agronomists and experts, the Colombian Coffee Growers’ Federation (FNC) and some 1,500 farmers of Santander and Tolima regions who produced the coffee."
 
Naora is the result of a late harvesting process. The coffee cherries were matured for an extended yet controlled period of time allowing the coffee to develop a unit of aromatic notes similar to blackcurrant and blueberry.

Intensity: 5

STATUS Magazine June 2012: Green Issue Ft. Miranda Kerr

Our office Jagnus Design Studio is also featured in this issue. Thanks guys!

"We’re not mean. We’re green. The art team’s desks are decorated with potted plants (they really did shop for those themselves) to match the new tables. Our personal instagram accounts are bursting with #plantlife photos. We’ve been making mini “save the planet” campaigns in the magazine, and we also recently collaborated with A Liter of Light, an organization that recycles plastic bottles to provide light. So we thought, for this month of June, why not release our first ever Green issue? Yep, it’s our first, but we’re a young team after all. Call us a baby bloomer, why don’t you, and join the movement." - STATUS
