Accent won the Formex Formidable 2014 design award and the Red Dot Award in 2016 for its stylish looks and ergonomic design.
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.
