Icon Hill Wine packaging may have been, in part, inspired by the standard form of wine bottles; famous designer Zaha Hadid did not have to alter the general silhouette of this vessel significantly in order to arrive at her refined sculptural product. It is also, of course, the liquid contents of the container that likely influenced the decision to turn this bottle of Leo Hillinger's 2009 vintage into a droplet of water.

It doesn't take the perfectly rounded shape that you might expect, for a concave groove was sculpted into Icon Hill Wine packaging. This is meant to represent the ripple created when a drop comes in contact with a fluid surface beneath it. However you appreciate or interpret these graceful bottles, they certainly exude an exceptional elegance.
