Thermos
November 19

Named after the Greek word 'therme' meaning hot, the Thermos bottle is an ubiquitous part of American lunch culture. Invented by Sir James Dewar in 1892, the Thermos vacuum flask was first commercially produced in 1904. Popular in the post-war years of the late 1940's, the enduring form of the Thermos bottle remains today as a symbol of practical and functional design.
