Kontra Vacuum JugPrice: $269.00
Design by Troels Seidenfaden, 2012.
Sweeping lines and elegant form are the focus of this new Kontra Vacuum Jug design. The thermo jug's organic shape is reminiscent of the curving designs of the 1950s, but has an added edge from the polished stainless steel surface. The Kontra Vacuum Jug also boasts a visually pleasing design where the handle is a natural part of the jug's body. A complete path extends from the jug's spout to the handle, down through the jug's body and back up to the spout, creating fluid, uninterrupted lines.
While it can give the impression of a piece of art, the Kontra Vacuum Jug is functional and easy-to-use. A simple click on the top controls the open/close function of the spout, allowing for single hand pouring.
Material(s): Polished stainless steel

Stelton was founded in Denmark, 1960 with humble beginnings selling steel hollowware. When administrative director Peter Holmblad established a cooperation with the leading Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1964 they saught to create a true line of tableware where correlation of design between the individual items would always ensure harmonious table settings. The result was the now famous Cylinda-Line which was launched in 1967 and immediately attracted considerable attention for its serene and functionalist design. The company rapidly grew in Denmark and worldwide due to the success of Cylinda-Line.
Today, Stelton offers five different design-lines with products from more than 20 top-designers and thereby represents once again one of the most innovative and front-running companies of its kind.
