as a big fan of naoto fukasawa I can only be pleased with the two new objects that we are presented here: a vacuum flask of glacial – perfection and an insulated thermal jug, both in a double-walled stainless steel,’ says alberto alessi.

with minimalist simplicity and clean-cut shapes, steel plays a key role as the material of the alessi range on show at the 2017 ambiente fair in frankfurt. creating linear reflections with its surroundings, the elegant design of the ‘caraffa’ jug is perfect for various domestic and professional settings. its double stainless steel wall without an air chamber in between guarantees greater thermal insulation and makes it suitable for both hot and cold drinks. furthermore, following the gentle slope of the beak, it features a practical and easy to use handle that curves down the side of the jug.

continuing the clean contemporary and geometrical style, naoto fukasawa‘s ‘thermos’ vacuum flask is defined by its simple and elemental silhouette. designed for your travels or life in the office, the lid turns into a practical cup where the hot or cold drink can be enjoyed once poured through the flask’s push-style spout. again, the product is also manufactured with a double stainless steel wall to ensure that the contents is kept at a constant temperature.
