Marc Thorpe Design


Marc Thorpe was asked to design a limited edition bottle for Coca-Cola to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1915 bottle. The design of the carafe is directly inspired by the architecture of the original 1915 bottle. The frosted glass vessel appears to be suspended in space above a high polished darkened steel base. On the base is the laser engraved logo of Coca-Cola.

Thorpe states, “I wanted to produced a form that not only reflects the historical references of the past but symbolizes movement toward the future.” The carafe’s inspired details include the exaggerated curvature of the 1915 glass body, frosted pale green glass, vertical top to bottom fluting and polished steel cap.
