If you've had coffee at Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea any time in the last few years, there is a good chance you recall the drink (a cappuccino or pour over perhaps) — as well as the vessel in which it was served. It was a porcelain cup, remember, thick at the base to keep the drink warm. That cup was designed by notNeutral, a product design and retail firm in Los Angeles. And they are quickly changing the way we drink coffee.

The future is now, and it comes with cocktail sauce
Oct 6, 2014 10:00 am

Nice restaurants around the world love serving chilled seafood towers. Why? They're a great way to pad the bill and incredibly easy to assemble. Get some crushed ice, add shrimp, a few oysters, maybe half a lobster and voilà, fruits de mer. Chefs can send them out knowing that as long as the seafood is fresh, the guests will be happy. It's been like this for decades – centuries even – and there's been no sign of change coming... until now.

A film studio in Hollywood has recreated the Pan Am experience right down to same dishes and glassware.
