Essay

'Thermos' is designed as a coffee container for the road, and therefore comes in dimensions that make it fit easily into your pocket. Two cups go with the 0.5 litre container. During transport these are secured in place with an elastic band. When used, the elastic band simply changes function, becoming a handle, while the thermos flask becomes a coffee jug. In the opinion of the designer, it is the visual play involving these two container archetypes that constitutes the special character of the product.

Comment by the nominators:
A lovingly conceived and poetically playful object design, demonstrating creative originality while at the same time responding to a felt need in daily living.
