Can a flask really be a design icon? Apparently so – and that flask is the Stanley Flask. In fact, just to prove the point, one sits in the Museum of Modern Icons in Milan.
Claimed to be the toughest flask in the world, the company claims to have one on display that was run over by 70 ton truck – and still works. It’s made from 100 per cent stainless steel, uses Char-Vac Technology to retain temperature and has a lifetime guarantee – and if it is a design icon, is one of the cheapest around, with prices from £15.99.
