MOR Cosmetics Packaging- 03.23.10
On one of my latest shopping wanderings, i stumbled upon MOR Cosmetics out of australia, and am absolutely taken by their packaging (products seem fabulous too, but haven’t had a chance to play with them much). Awesome story of how a talented visual merchandiser and industrial/interior designer team up to create a stunningly beautiful line of soaps, scents, cosmetics, and more. The lip glosses are presented in fun pyramids, making for a beautiful stocking stuffer or gift add on… the lip balm tins are SO pretty in their ornate oval tins… and the gift tins even more so, and they are a great size to reuse around the house. Of them all, the Little Luxuries collection is definitely making my “perfect random gifts” list! See lots of pics of my favorites of their packaging on the next page…
From their about page ~ i love the story of MOR:
MOR is the expression of a dynamic collaboration between Australian designers, Dianna Burmas and Deon St.Mor.
Creative spirits merged when they first met in 1998 unaware that in just over three years, they would be running what would become a hugely successful international body care company.
At the time of their meeting, Dianna was carving a reputation as a talented visual merchandiser, stamping her refreshing aesthetic on department store floors across the globe. Meanwhile, Deon, an industrial design graduate, was co-owner of a budding, Melbourne-based interior design company.
With a shared passion for travel, food and the arts ~ their union led to the development of an extensive range of contemporary lifestyle products and the opening of an interior-design retail store in the Melbourne CBD. Their signature pieces included lamps, vases, cushions, candle holders and stationery with a distinct, chic-urban edge.
In the midst of discussing their newly made plans in May 2001, in the back of a New Delhi cab, Deon spotted a street sign with the word, MOR (meaning peacock in Hindi). It struck a chord and upon their return to Melbourne, the pair immediately registered MOR Cosmetics.
The collections combine Deon and Dianna’s flair for design and are presented in uniquely beautiful packaging. The duo is continuously refining their ranges ~ sourcing new ingredients & innovation to capture the essence of luxury and well-being.
