This week marks the official start of summer! And there’s no better way to cool down while also making an environmentally aware statement than with “polar ice.” Two silicon cups produce these unique ice cubes that depict a polar bear and 2 penguins standing on a glacier. Once in your drink, they gradually melt away, mimicking a real-life scenario that many arctic animals are currently facing.
They were designed by Atsuhiro Hayashi, who made a splash when they were originally unveiled at Tokyo Designer’s Week. The silicone cups are made in Japan and are safe to use with food (backed up by US and European food safety tests).
Read on to reserve one for yourself!
