Nor­mann Copen­hagen ‘Geo’ jug

Inside Out (Australia) - - Things We Love -

The form: A ther­mal one-litre jug in plas­tic made up of strong geo­met­ric shapes. What makes it spe­cial? The re­cip­i­ent of a Red Dot Award in 2013, the ‘Geo’ has an ex­ag­ger­ated geo­met­ric shape with a squat base and a pro­nounced beak-like lip that sets it well apart from other jugs. Of course, its main fea­ture is that it has ther­mal prop­er­ties so it can be used for cold or hot bev­er­ages but it’s the bold geo­met­ric look that forces ev­ery­one to take no­tice. While the jug was launched ini­tially as a stand­alone prod­uct, it has since been joined by an en­tire col­lec­tion of items around the con­cept of drink­ing bev­er­ages – sugar bowls, milk jugs, can­is­ters and trays. De­signer Ni­cholai Wiig Hansen is also jus­ti­fi­ably fa­mous for two hugely suc­cess­ful IKEA prod­ucts from the ’90s: the home-offf­fice ‘Jules’ chair and the ‘PS’ locker. Ex­pect to pay: $125.
