MW Luxury Packaging Wins WorldStar Award

MW Luxury Packaging, 2015 Luxury Packaging Manufacturer of the Year and the winner of many prestigious awards, has won a WorldStar Award for their Sonos Blue Note pack.

The WorldStar competition, organised by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO), is designed to highlight and reward advancements and excellence in packaging and design technology, from which others in the industry can learn.

During the 2015 awards, representatives from 19 packaging associations, alongside members of the WPO, judged 293 packaging projects from 35 countries, during 2 days of deliberation.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of iconic jazz record label Blue Note, the label teamed up with wireless speaker brand Sonos to create the Sonos PLAY:1 Blue Note Limited Edition speakers.

MW Luxury Packaging, a leading global packaging manufacturer, created a limited edition carry case, crafted to meet the beauty and exceptional quality of the speakers – and to reflect the signature style of the Blue Note record label.

The case features elegant dark blue PU leather, hand-stitched with contrasting Blue Note lighter blue thread, and contains a velvet covered tray designed to carry the two Sonos speakers.

Beneath this, there is a disc and beautiful hardback book documenting the history of the Blue Note label. The carry case is finished with a bespoke leather handle, embossed with the Sonos logo, and two matt black clasp locks, evocative of a traditional vinyl record case.

The WorldStar Awards Presentations Ceremony takes place in May 2016.
