Insulated vessels for keeping, carrying and serving hot or cold drinks come in a variety of sizes and types depending on their intended use, but rarely are they considered as a range. However, this extensive family of stainless steel cups, flasks and carafes, covers the entire spectrum from a single cup to a large serving carafe; from individual to group use; from indoor to outdoor.
Aptly named Celsius, the cylindrical vessels are deliberately devoid of any overt features or embellishments. Instead their design relies on referencing known typologies, refined proportions and carefully considered functionality. For example, the base of the double wall cup has a slightly raised foot, a reference to that of its porcelain counterpart. It can also house a removable strainer for loose leaf tea drinking, a practice common in many parts of the world but especially in Asia. The cup also docks magnetically when placed upside down on the flasks, eliminating the need for any unsightly and unhygienic screw threads that are normally found on thermos flasks.
The flask lids feature a unique 360-degree spout, which makes the pouring action similar to that of a normal bottle. Both the flask and carafe lids also have a simple push button mechanism, making opening and closing intuitive, quick and secure.
