The Finnish home products maker Magisso has won Best Collection Design in the Global Innovation Awards at the International Home + Housewares Show, which wraps up tomorrow in Chicago. The company won for their Naturally Cooling Ceramics collection designed by Simon Steven. Naturally Cooling Ceramics was also a winner in the Fennia Prize 2014 design competition earlier this year.
The beautiful collection, which includes a 1 liter carafe, wine cooler, champagne cooler, and ice bucket with integrated tongs, stays cool by simply soaking the pieces in cold water for a few minutes before filling it with food or drink. As an added bonus, you can also create your very own design or write a message on the side of the ceramics with chalk. I appreciate the simple but elegant forms of the pieces combined the low-tech way they stay cool.
