Boo…

I’m Boo carafe

“Boo is like the skin, or a balloon surrounding the water with openings that tell the simple story of fluid motion in and out of the glass. The carafe exudes a strong personality, as if it’s saying “I am Boo, who are you?”

Designed by Torbjørn Anderssen and Andreas Engesvik of “Norway Says”.
