Finnish for "Cool".

Finnish design company Magisso has a knack for adding a bit of extra oomph to the items we use every day.  New to the store, their collection of self-cooling ceramics, are designed to stay cool for hours after simply running water over their porous exterior.  You can also treat them as a canvas for personalization simply by using chalk.  We currently carry the Carafe and Wine Chiller, (pictured), as well as the Ice Bucket and of course, Dog Bowls.  After all, why should Fido have warm water on a hot summer day?

If there is a home bartender in you or someone you know, the Mixing Pitcher is a must have Bar Cart tool. The Japanese Yari patterned glass adds style to the classic vessel shape, while the Hawthorne stainless strainer completes the package.  Even James Bond would switch to stirred over shaken if he had one of these.
