Tapwell

2017
Client: Tapwell
Scope of work: Packaging system for kitchen and bathroom faucet specialist

Tapwell’s packaging
We developed a new packaging system for Tapwell’s core range and for a series of bathroom accessories. The aim was to produce a new, fresh and economically favourable packaging concept. Such a task in the context of a packaging industry is far from easy, production levels for quantity manufacture being limited. The packaging solutions offered are designed for viewing both lying on shelves and as pin-pack.

Sweden’s National Arena

2015
Client: Sweden’s National Arena
Scope of work: Friends Arena – wayfinding and signage

Sweden’s national arena stands in Solna, a Stockholm suburb. It rises above a busy traffic landscape and ringed by an intricate network of roads, rail tracks and pedestrian paths. The commission given was to facilitate visitor orientation and surmount the numerous barriers. Guided by the arena’s existing design programme and architectonic configuration Kazakoff Design produced a series of display pillars, pictograms, signposts and maps. Each pillar carries a clear direction indicator and an easy-to-grasp map of the immediate area.

SnP Contemporary Doors

2012
Client: SnP Contemporary Doors
Scope of work: Design programme for a Swedish door manufacturer

The new design programme for Snickar Per Contemporary Doors, a Swedish high-quality door manufacturer for over 60 years, tells that a door is not merely just one more individual design element but also forms part of a wider context in the surrounding architecture — both visually and functionally. The idea is thus to design not only a visual surface but the innovative function of the door as well. The tone of communication is confident yet humble. Typography, imagery and colour choice convey a strong awareness of superior design and production qualities.

Bricmate

2007
Client: Bricmate
Scope of work: Branding for ceramic and porcelain company

Kazakoff Design has created a new arrangement for Bricmate’s catalogue, presenting the entire product range together with the various sizes and colours available. The products are displayed on a whole page with structure and colour in full scale, the opposite page providing information on size availability, article number and pricing. The cover adds three-D to the catalogue, in the form of a porcelain tile. The newly designed catalogue gives the company a competitive advantage and provides better information for the customer.

Juror Notes: Incredibly understated, restrained to the point of creating intrigue and mystery. Beautiful; takes away from the expected vocabulary.
