New Bottle Design

Schweppes enlisted Birdstone, a Melbourne, Australia based packaging agency to design a contemporary look for their sparkling waters and carbonated soft drinks.


Validate new bottle design across glass and PET plastic materials.


Using a combination of SLA 3D printing and CNC machining technologies, water clear prototype models were created and polished to a very high standard.

A total of six bottles were made across three design concepts, which were then subjected to a week of hands-on consumer research.


According to Birdstone, both prototyping processes produced outstanding replicas of the production materials.

  • Prototypes matched the appearance, weight and visual properties of glass and PET.
  • Expert guidance by Formero team meant true-to-life prototypes supplied.
  • Timely delivery kept project moving forward on track.
