Muuto is a new Scandinavian design house whose names means “fresh perspective” in Finnish. In the designer’s words: “With the shape of the jug I wanted to tell a straightforward story about its functional anatomy: A large hole to fill the jug, a small hole to pour, a low center of gravity, and a middle area to get a firm grip. At the same time I wanted to create a flowing balance between these four elements in a way that makes them come together in an organic unity, like a heart and its veins or a tree and its branches. The end result almost makes the jug come alive.” Hand made fine bone china – unglazed and hand polished outside, glazed inside. Hold 1.15 liters, or 2.5 pints. 9.5″ tall x 5.5″ wide.
Great as a carafe or as a sculptural object. You can pick it up here for $95.
