The shape of the vessel is inspired by ancient Rome amphora, which is often associated with celebration and enjoyments.
The design is inspired by taro, traditional cork container with lid, Portuguese shepherd used to carry and preserve food. The idea is to use cork’s sustainable, renewable and thermally quality to create a low tech, durable beverage server, which will use a lot less energy and low carbon to produce than conventional thermal flasks. It has vacuum flask’s performance with a more pleasing appearance and greater life spans than common double walled glass flasks.
