Eva Solo: A Classic Carafe in New Colours

Eva Solo’s 1.0 litre fridge carafe is part of an illustrious range of 100% drip-free jugs and carafes. It is now available with neoprene covers in three new colour combinations.

The fridge carafes now come with neoprene covers in jolly green, pure white and in white with a lime-coloured zip, colours that add an elegant touch when serving beverages. Under the coloured neoprene covers, the award-winning carafe is just the same. The carafes are still 100% drip-free, guaranteeing no marks on your tablecloth or table. The fliptop lid opens automatically when you pour, and the neoprene cover keeps the contents cold or hot.

The fridge carafe is inspired by the classic milk bottle, neatly fitting into most fridge doors. At the same time, its mouth is large enough for ice cubes and lemon slices to easily be added to the water. Both the carafe and the flip-top lid are dishwasher-safe, while the neoprene cover is machine-washable at 30°C.

Eva Solo is exhibitor at spoga+gafa 2013 in Cologne from September 8th to 10th.

Flask

  • By: Roee Magdassi, Jerusalem, Israel
  • Material: Titanium
  • Size: 30 x 5,5 x 5,5 cm when folded

Stakes is an ultra-light, portable outdoor cooking grill, suitable for hikes in nature. Three titanium stakes are inserted in the ground and function as legs for the rolled grilling net. The flexible triangle shape enables easy pinning of the grill while avoiding rocks or hard soil. The stakes and the net fold are packed into a Cordura plastic case equipped with silicon gripper for operation while the net is hot. Stakes creates a new experience of outdoor cooking and it’s an eco-friendly alternative for common disposable outdoor-grills. It is durable, folds quickly into its case after use and can be washed in a dishwasher.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.

 

Haskell: Outdoor Design with Ecological Awareness

The garden furniture from California based company Haskell is not just about smart and simple designs, it’s also about sustainability. The use of eco-based and regional materials is crucial to them.

For their furnishings Haskell uses stainless steel that is domestically sourced and up to 85% recycled. Among other elements they are using to manufacture their chairs, tables and benches, are Bella-Dura™, a fiber that begins as a by-product of post-industrial waste and is fully recyclable, and GreenShield™, a special finish, designed from established nanotechnology principles to use benign materials efficiently, eliminate waste and minimize the consumption of energy.

Repast is the flagship of Haskell’s summer collection, an original dining solution tailored for both friends and family, inside or out. The pieces are tough, weather-resistant and constructed for a lifetime. The heavy, stout seating wood of table, bench and chair is mated with hand cut, bent, and welded steel units powder coated in a white finish. All hidden fasteners are made from stainless steel. The hand fabricated dining pieces pay homage to classic designs of the past while displaying a strongly original combination of color and material.

Nominated for Unique Youngstar Design Contest at spoga+gafa 2013: Contio by Matilda Lindblom

Contio

  • By: Matilda Lindblom Design & Architecture, Stockholm, Sweden
  • Material: Metal, rattan
  • Size: 80 x 50 x 50 cm
  • Website: matildalindblom.com

The idea behind Contio is to design one chair with different expressions and attitudes, one chair wearing different clothes. Its concept is built around the notion of “meetings”. Matilda Lindblom designed a chair that embodies the meeting between materials and meetings between the manufacturing process and craftmanship. Contio is part of her master thesis at Konstfack University in Sweden in which she wanted to find out how different one and the same chair can become. The result is seven chairs with small variations that suit different people.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.
