The Magic Box

The Magic Box - GIF

The Magic Box is designed for presentations and touring, while showcasing a slice of Tasmania.

The base is a padded compartment to store whiskey bottles for transit. The petal above is also padded and designed to store the whisky glasses in transit. In presentation mode, the top two ‘trays’ are opened and pivoted in position to suit the size of the gathering, revealing the bottles on display. The presenter and guests enjoy the exchange triggered by the quality products on offer, while being treated to a quality Tasmanian experience.
