Bernadotte Thermo Jug in Design Inspired By Sigvard Bernadotte
Item Number 3583565The stylish and popular Bernadotte Thermo jug is a great example of bringing together the beauty of classic Scandinavian design and the practicality of contemporary times. Originally conceived by royal Prince Sigvard Bernadotte in 1938 as a beautiful but straightforward jug, the design has been transformed into a modern vacuum thermos. Now made entirely from stainless steel, it has a shatterproof inner shell that keeps fluids warm or cold for up to 6 hours. Sigvard Bernadotte was the son of the Swedish king but carved out a career as one of Georg Jensen's earliest collaborators. Greatly influenced by the functionalist movement prevalent at the time, his work is characterised by sophistication, elegance but above all practicality. The distinctive fluted jug is expertly crafted from chrome-plated stainless steel with a specially coated inner vessel that is resistant to taste contamination.
