Beverage Containers by Ole Jensen for Room Copenhagen

All of the products in Danish designer Ole Jensen’s new collection for the Scandinavian design company Room Copenhagen are based on Jensen’s hand clay models which have been interpreted into the final industrial pieces by the manufacturer’s in-house design team. In addition to a colander and juicer, the new collection also includes a jug and two different cups designs.
