Mikov has a long tradition of knife manufacture in Bohemia, and the company, in conjunction with architecture and design firm Olgoj Chorchoj, decided to introduce this tradition to a global audience. Mikov asked us to come up with beautiful new packaging for its beautiful pocket knives. Using precision laser cutting, we stencilled letters on cardboard, enabling purchasers of the knives to look inside the package. The Pocket Collection won a Designblok and Czech Grand Design prizes, and a few months later gained international acclaim with a Red Dot Award.
