Rania Bottle, Delta d'Or 1967
Rania milk, a hugely popular product in Barcelona during the sixties and seventies, was born in the neighborhood of Sants in the hands of Pere Freixas - founder of Freixas milk products. One of the reasons for its fame was the use of advertising and its packaging. The bottle was designed by André Ricard, a key name in the history of design, both in the city, and the country.
Although Rania milk did not survive the eighties, the packaging did. The bottle, which in 1967 won the Delta d’Or, can be seen today Barcelona's Palau Robert in the exhibition Premis Delta: 50 anys amb el disseny 1960-2010 (Delta Awards: 50 Years in Design)
The Rania bottle is one of 48 objects that the Disseny Hub Barcelona has lent to the exhibit, in order to pay tribute to Spanish industrial design. This was made possible thanks to collaboration between the Museu de les Arts Decoratives - DHUB and ADI- FAD (Association for Industrial Design and the Promotion Decorative Arts.) The exhibition will run until next June.
