22 Mar Ukuva iAfrica presents the U-tube
No newbies to the proudly South Africa theme, Ukuva iAfrica have been trading for more than 15 years creating various sauces and spices with a distinctive bit of design attached to their products: Namely the ‘African Neck’ wire feature, pictured below.
Now they have produced a new concept design for wine vessels called The U-Tube. The wine containing concept is described simply as “2 bottles, in a Tube, in a bag with a tap“. Created by Nigel Wood the concept has already won an international design award at the IFE exhibition in London.
If the international market responds similarly as they do towards Ukuva’s current product, then we suspect that this could be a hit. And I’ll tell you that a 1500ml wine vessel, priced well, with an African stamp of approval in a mass market situation, could go far.
