Suspended Ice Bucket by Rodolfo Dordoni.
This stylish Ice Bucket designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for MoMA has a cleverly conceived shape that makes ice cubes appear suspended within the vessel.
This icy illusion is not a party trick or a result of one too many gimlets, it is an ingeniously designed object with a number of functional advantages. A normal ice bucket looks nice and functional at first, yet only a few minutes later ice cubes inevitably get stuck together in a watery, unmanageable block of ice. This clever Ice Bucket by Rudolfo Dordoni presents a smart and visually appealing solution to the problem.
Its inverted interior suspends the ice cubes in such a way that they don’t get stuck together easy. A simple object that just works better, as its shape makes it easier to snatch and grab your cubes. Furthermore, this this borosilicate ice bucket significantly slows down the melting process, by isolating the ice from the water.
