Solar Glass is Like a Thermos… Only It’s a Glass

Hot drinks that have gone cold are such a drag. Unfortunately, this happens more often than you’d like. Some emergency always seems to come up just as you’re about to take a sip from that cup of freshly-brewed coffee. By the time everything’s all in order, you come back to a drink that’s too tepid to enjoy.

Working with that in mind is Fan Wu, who came up with the Solar Glass.

Solar Glass

It’s an insulated glass that has a structure that’s similar to a solar vacuum heat pipe. The outside of the glass has a coating that absorbs heat from the sun and surroundings, keeping the contents of the glass warm – just how you like it.

The Solar Glass is a 2013 iF Design award – concept design entry. While there’s no word on whether the Solar Glass will be produced, Bodum already produces similar glasses you can buy today.
