We all remember the classic scene in Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation" where Bill Murray's character is on set for the Suntory Whiskey commercial. "For relaxing times, make it Suntory time." Well, in real life, Suntory is trying to make your relaxing time a little more arty. The Japanese company, according to designboom has begun to create 3D ice cubes for their newest ad campaign. "3D on the rocks‘ is a collection of CNC-milled ice cubes made especially for their product, intricately crafted in architectural, human and domestic shapes. the objects range from an astronaut to kinkaku-ji, a japanese temple, each sculpted from a single block of ice and carved into based on a three-dimensional render."
