everyday design : Ferrero Harissa
Easily spotted on a condiment shelf at an upscale food emporium in Tokyo, this little box of Ferrero Harissa stood out thanks to a combination of vibrant color and quaint graphics. Not the last word in refinement, perhaps, but perfectly adequate.
The sauce is not the best – it’s a corporate rendition of a classic condiment. It lacks character while remaining sufficiently true to the original to be classified as Harissa. The texture is good, however, and the little blue box is available within easy reach across the world. Pick one up if you spot it anywhere – corporate or not, it’s miles ahead of the average ‘hot sauce’.
