“I always wanted to design such a thermo cup. Despite the fact that the external shape and properties remained classic, an interesting challenge was the implementation of the product in a completely different material and as a result: other molding principles, other technological requirements and difficulties, which, thanks to close collaboration with the factory, were achieved. That’s how this modern product with almost a century of history was designed”,said the creator of “iconyMug” Mikhail Chistiakov.
