Tall and stately it observes the world – or the world of the table – like the proud Emporor Penguin, which is the inspiration for the pitcher. Its round shape is aerodynamic and elegant. Its unique shape combines fullness and angularity, which gives it the immediate identifiable silhouette that distinguishes it in the table setting.
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.

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.
Glow – designed for large, slow burning candles.
Glow is an elegant candlestick for untraditional candles. By burning large candles, the home is fed by light and warmth in a fantastic way, as well as cosyness which is espacially enjoyable during the long cold winter months. Sadly not many candleholders are suitable for large candles and other untraditional candles. Maria Berntsen has created Glow to solve the problem. The candlestick is elegant: it’s composed by threads in stainless steel which are wound in and out in a nostalgic version of the symbol of infinity. Glow’s fine design adds character to large candles.
With its floating and elegant idiom, Season is so simple and comfortable to look at, that it can simply stand alone. But because of its simple form, it provides the opportunity to let imagination loose. The candlestick can be decorated with colored bands for the fall or the spring, or by bonding green branches around it for christmas. Live out your creative skills no matter the season!
