Leo Hillinger’s Wine Bottle by Zaha Hadid

Austrian winemaker Leo Hillinger has commissioned Pritzker-winning architect, Zaha Hadid to design a bottle befitting the 2009 red cuvée, called ‘Icon Hill.’ Only 999 of the bottles have been produced, using NURB-based design software and cast-iron molding processes. The bottle manufacturer directly implemented this 3D master geometry to produce the cast iron moulds for the glass forming process.

A curvaceous bottle reflects the wine’s bold and distinctive character. One side has a concave indentation with the same curve as the back of the bottle so a row of them can interlock. A dimple in the base allows sediment to gather and provides a thumb hold for pouring.

The sleek, contoured shape imitates a drop of liquid and allows multiple bottles to be interlocked seamlessly, creating a ‘singular whole’, according to Zaha Hadid.

“Noble, elegant, full of fine shapes and curves, as well as with edge,” the winemaker said in a press release. “This is the design by Zaha Hadid. Thus, it is—as the wine itself—complex and fascinating.”
