On August 16 at the 2017 IDSA International Design Conference in Atlanta, the company will be named as either a Gold or Silver IDEA Award winner in the Kitchen & Accessories category, demonstrating the way Ember Mug continues to rack up the awards for its innovation and design.

Design experts from around the world judge the international design competition, sponsored annually by IDSA.

Ember worked closely with design firm Ammunition Group on the development of the mug.

We worked hard to bring this product to life...it's an incredible honor to be recognized by such an esteemed organization as IDSA.

Clay Alexander, founder & CEO of Ember Technologies

“Ember solves a simple, yet universal challenge faced by coffee and tea drinkers everywhere: keeping a hot beverage at the ideal temperature for an extended period of time,” says Clay Alexander, founder & CEO of Ember Technologies. “We wanted to show how a mug could be a work of art, beautifully designed and an object of desire. We worked hard to bring this product to life and Ammunition worked with us every step of the way. It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by such an esteemed organization as IDSA.”

Ember’s flagship product is the only temperature adjustable mug that keeps coffee or tea at a consistent drinking temperature from the first sip to the last drop. The company’s patented temperature-control technology combines phase change cooling with microprocessor-controlled active heating, creating the world’s most precise temperature control system. Launched in November 2016, Ember saw unprecedented success in sales and wide adoption from consumers. Ember is currently available at Starbucks locations and online at Starbucks.com,  embertech.com, and on Amazon Prime.
