Design and function in its prime. Accent, the thermos jug designed by Gustav Hallén, won the design-award Formex Formidable 2014 and the Red Dot Award 2016 for its beautiful design and ergonomic shape. The thermos is drip-free and keeps the heat for 12 hours. Now also with a new stainless insert with double walls for an even better way of keeping the heat and for durable quality.
Accent can be summed up with the words “form & function”. By function, we don’t just mean good heat-retaining properties and an excellent pouring function with no drips. Accent also stands for good ergonomics, with its sturdy, rubberised handle that everyone can grip safely. Like a pan or a wine bottle, the shape flirts with the history and tradition of food, at the same time as the jug’s details bring to mind modern kitchen design. It’s a jug that’s perfect for being out on display in your kitchen.
