Quack ♥

Georg Jensen QuackToday I am loving my new Georg Jensen Quack Serving Jug that I picked up for a song on eBay and arrived in our letterbox this morning!  I have been coveting this little beauty for quite some time and so it pays to be patient:

QUACK serving jugs: winner of the 2003 Red Dot Award, a prestigious international award for excellence in design

The designer’s motto is that “a thing should never be just a thing.” Rather it should inspire emotion. Whether it makes you smile or think of a long-buried memory, good design tells a story. For the practical pieces that we use every day, this is just as important.

QUACK is fun. Leaning forward, it resembles its namesake animal, though only in an abstract way. It is a compact jug but manages to hold up to 0,9 L. It can be used for hot or cold drinks. While it is not officially a thermos, the polyurethane foam insert and stopper enable it to keep liquids warm or cold for 1-2 hours.
