Most efforts to develop environmentally responsible design fall short, so Harry Allen Design was pleased when Ecovative, a revolutionary player in the eco-material world, asked us to collaborate on a line of acoustic tiles made from their Myco Foam, a sound-absorbing foam grown from mushrooms.
Harry’s minimal aesthetic stems from a belief that products with fewer details are easier to live with, so although we explored many options, this abstracted bottle form, simple and unadorned, seemed the best fit for a portable product. Its sleek form compliments both user and surrounding. It goes effortlessly from bag, to car, to gym and beyond, and one is proud to pull it out for a sip. In addition to being a bold new product offering, the Apex Bottle embodies the simplicity and quality we expect from the Built brand.
The 18-ounce leak-proof bottle features Built’s patented PerfectSeal™ technology. Its double-wall, vacuum-insulated stainless steel construction maintains the temperature of cold beverages for up to 24 hours and hot beverages for up to 8 hours. It is initially available in Rose Gold, Mint, and Black, has a suggested retail price of $14.99.
