2S Global Design created this eloquent and intricate packaging to house Nikka Whiskey's top liquors. Closed, the packaging sits as a simple and modest black box. But opened, this box expands into a multitude of geometric designs with secret compartments for the beverages of your choice.
"Nikka Founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky, Nikka has come to symbolize Japanese excellence in whisky. True to it's origins, the Nikka Box is a pure and elegant case, inspired by the origami art of paper folding, and the himitsu-bako: a secret message box which was once used by the samurai. It embodies Nikka’s spirit of innovation rooted in tradition. The Nikka Box can take on a multitude of different shapes, depending on how its different elements are arranged. Folded out on its entire length, it proudly displays all six bottles. Other combinations result in rectangular, triangular or double diamond formations. When completely opened, folded back on itself and topped with the service tray, it can even turn into a dedicated whisky tasting table!"
