Ammunition + Ember
Ember is the world’s first temperature control mug that allows you to enjoy coffee and other hot drinks at the precise drinking temperature you prefer, and keep it there, prolonging the drinking experience. Our design challenge was to fit Ember’s technology into a small package so as to be useful yet unobtrusive. Our intent was to lightly augment the things people already expect when drinking from their favorite mug. This meant finding ways to make Ember’s technology recede into the background so that people can simply enjoy their hot beverage.
Getting the feel of the mug right was absolutely key for a great drinking experience, so we spent a lot of time finding the perfect materials. The body of the mug is made of durable double-walled stainless steel with a ceramic coated exterior that perfectly replicates the look and feel of a traditional mug.
