Award-winning designs of Anadolu Cam
İBB Hamidiye Water Bottle: The design of the İBB Hamidiye Water Bottle, which brought the award to Anadolu Cam in the beverages category, refers to the elegance of Istanbul. The easy-to-hold neck of the bottle emphasizes the fluidity of water, while the bottom features a 3D tulip pattern. This tulip pattern is reminiscent of the brand's well-established logo, which dates back to Ottoman times.
Kemal Kükrer Chili Hot Sauce Bottle: This bottle, which was awarded in the food category, stands out with its red color, slim and tall structure and exquisite shape, all highlighting chili peppers. This creates an expressive harmony between the bottle and the product inside it. The bottle has a narrow head and a slim and tall neck to ensure controlled flow of its hot contents.
