Montreal design firm has the upper hand on staying warm
MONTREAL, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - A3D Innovation a Montreal based firm specializing in industrial design, development
and product improvement, introduces its latest project - the vertiGOmug. A mug that can prevent you from burning yourself.
The vertiGOmug by A3D is an innovative way to enjoy your coffee or tea. Made of eco-friendly
ceramic and natural silicone, it is a covered mug with a small pump
system that allows a controlled amount of liquid to escape from a small
spout that sits on the top of the cover. Releasing the liquid allows it
time to cool before taking your first sip. Its double-sided insulation
and innovative cover keeps your beverages warmer for a longer period as
opposed to an open cup or vented travel mug.
"Unlike paper or plastic cups, vertiGOmug does not react at high
temperature so it does not alter the taste of your premium beverage,"
says Roberto Barbusci, industrial designer and co-founder of A3D Innovation. "It's also an effective way of preventing billions of disposables cups
from ending up in landfills."
A3D has partnered with Indiegogo an international crowdfunding platform for
creative projects, to help the vertiGOmug come to life. "We invite the
consumer to be part of this adventure with us," says Véronique
Bibeau-Poissant, President and co-founder of A3D Innovation. "If people like the vertiGOmug project, they can pledge money to make
In addition to reaching their funding goal by March 18th A3D is also
asking the Indiegogo community to select their favorite design from six
different patterns. Project supporters, also known as 'funders' within
the Indiegogo community, may also chose to fund the project by
purchasing the vertiGOmug at a discounted price, as part of a pre-sale
pending the official launch. Project 'funders' are only charged if the
funding goal is reached.
