Multipurpose:

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of using living hinges in design but it’s always been hard to think of ways to utilize them properly. Jörg Boner’s ‘Thermo’ coffee flask accomplishes this and received Wallpaper’s 2011 award for Best Domestic Design. I would although like to know if the rubber strap has enough elasticity and strength to create a seal tight enough to keep liquids in. The strap would also have to be strong enough to prevent the cups from being accidentally jostled out in a backpack/purse.
