Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award 2009
For many people, coffee is an important daily ritual.
I was inspired to design a stylish but functional alternative to the takeaway cup, one that reflects the care
that has been put into the preparation of the coffee and one that enhances the experience of drinking the
coffee. I was inspired to design a vessel that not only performed better than the alternative, but takes
a lead in enhancing the experience and at the same time reducing the environmental impact.
Functionally it’s a dual wall vessel with superior heat retention and a cool touch exterior. The lid twists
shut to prevent accidental spillage during transit and the inner working of the lid can be removed
for complete and thorough cleaning.
Aesthetically, it’s a reflection of the care and passion we have for our coffee - it is a pleasure to use and
a pleasure to own and, it enhances the experience of this important daily ritual.
