Advertising and design agency Lola and design studio Tata&Friends, both based in Spain, created this incongruously—maybe even inappropriately—elegant package for ten “iconic” porn movies. I asked them over email what inspired the project and their answer was simply: “The boundaries of shame.” I’ll leave it to others to parse the semantics, but it’s hard not to argue that the end product, of which they produced just one hundred copies, is beautiful.
