SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- method, the eco-friendly, design-forward soap company, has partnered with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) to launch the method x SFMOMA 'Glass for Good' bottle—a contemporary interpretation inspired by the iconic method® teardrop hand wash bottle. The creative partnership is brought to life through a never-before-seen glass-faceted silhouette that is thoughtfully designed inside and out. 'Glass for Good' was designed to be refilled and reused as an ornamental design touch for any home and all proceeds from the bottles will directly benefit SFMOMA's arts education programs.
The bespoke bottle is made from dazzling faceted glass with copper accents and filled with method's signature naturally-derived, biodegradable formula in "violet noir," an elegant fragrance with notes of violet leaf, lavender and cedarwood.
"As we thought about how to approach method's first glass bottle in collaboration with such a distinguished partner as SFMOMA, I wanted the design to draw a strong link to nature," said method designer Sean McGreevy. "The end result was heavily inspired by gems and how they are cut in a way that maximizes reflections and internal luminosity."
"We are delighted to partner with method on this uniquely designed product," said Jana Machin, director of the SFMOMA Museum Stores. "Since method has generously donated the glass bottles, the profits from each sale directly benefit our education programs, which serve more than 60,000 students, teachers and families each year."
The method x SFMOMA 'Glass for Good' limited-edition bottle will be available on November 12th exclusively through the SFMOMA Museum Store in the heart of downtown San Francisco and online at museumstore.sfmoma.org, retailing at $15. Only 5,000 glass bottles were created, making the beautiful bottle a truly limited-edition event.
