Northernmost is the result of a visual research project on cognac. The self initiated brief asked for a Norwegian brand of cognac. The name is a reference to the oak the product is aged on, with the oak coming from the northernmost natural occurrence of sessile oak in the world; Edøy. The bottle takes inspiration from the mountainous landscape of Norway’s rugged northwest coast. The design itself is a classic scandinavian minimalist counterpart to an otherwise saturated category. The focus behind Northernmost is content, rather than symbolic value.
