Born in Sweden in 1965, Thomas Meyerhoffer is a creator and visionary. After earning a degree in Industrial Design from Art Center, he started his journey with an internship at Porsche, only to Go West to California for IDEO. It was there Meyerhoffer was introduced to the idea of giving objects meaning through its form, working with Naoto Fukasawa. He further formed these notions at Apple working alongside Sir Jony Ive on projects like the eMate and iMac. That taught him to combine the fields of art, craft and technology. These theories, merged with contemporary culture, make up Meyerhoffer’s design practice today.
INFORMATION: The purest form possible. The design of the Coca-Cola glass is guided by functionality. Exploring the external form and internal force. Balancing proportions and refining outline down to the purest form possible.
The design is a clear expression of the function of the glass and has succeeded in becoming a contemporary symbol of the Coca-Cola brand identity. Launched at Colette, Paris, 2013.
