How was this project born?
The project was born from an idea of the creative duo AMeBE in 2012, when far from home and from their beloved Italy they set out in search of Extra Virgin Oil, a “sacrosanct” ingredient of the Mediterranean diet and difficult to find. There was a need for a container that was worthy of representing this sacred and fundamental ingredient. “We started with the well-known Our Lady of Lourdes, thinking about a functional cap that could meet all the criteria of a good table oil. And so, we transformed the crown of the virgin into a drip-proof cap. Thanks to 3D printing technology, we were able to obtain a prototype that also reflects our aesthetic needs, making it in blue resin (food grade). We then envisioned a version with a 9kt gold cap for collectors and fans of the icon.” The body, made thanks to the artisanal development of a steel mold, was designed for a mass production of WHITE STD glass with hand-painted finishes for a Luxe version. The oil jug is entirely made in Italy thanks to the excellent workers and technologies of the local industry.
