Knoll Packaging has been shortlisted for Innovation of the year and Limited edition of the year at the UK Packaging Awards 2021 for the Penhaligon Advent Calendar 2020. The winners will be announced on November 12 in London.
The Advent Calendar has the unique shape of the iconic Penhaligon fragrance and is made up of all FSC panels and papers. Printed in the custom color of the Penhaligon with a combination of four color printing, hot stamping and embossing, its festive graphics feature the Penhaligon van delivering scented gifts on the city streets.
Illustrating its technical know-how, Knoll Packaging has taken up the challenge of making this advent calendar entirely in cardboard and optimizing the format to integrate the 24 fragrances and accessories inside. The quality and rigidity of the materials and Knoll’s expertise in round cardboard constructions make this new form of packaging a real asset.
“We are delighted that Penhaligon’s trusted our global team to bring such an intricate design to life, and it is an honor to now be recognized by the UK packaging community for our work. It took an extraordinary collaboration to bring the brand’s signature bottle shape to life in an oversized advent calendar. A high level of attention to detail, quality and problem solving was required every step of the way to achieve perfect results. Penhaligon’s is a quintessentially British brand, so it is particularly meaningful to see the 2020 advent calendar being celebrated by our peers,“Jeremy Cohen, CEO and President of Knoll Printing & Packaging, said in a statement.
Knoll will showcase its latest packaging innovations at LuxePack Monaco from September 27 to 29.
