When computer graphics was in its infancy -- well before CG dinosaurs appeared -- a simple 3D model of a teapot was used for testing software and new rendering techniques. And the simple lines of Normann Copenhagen's Geo thermos is reminiscent of that time when CG was comparatively primitive to what we see on screen today.
Made from simple thermoplastic the thermos' most notable feature is its $US90 price tag, making it an expensive addition to your kitchen -- particularly given it looks like it's made from building blocks. But it keeps hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold, and you get your choice of six different colour options. Who needs fancy curves and contours when simplicity looks this lovely?
