Pewter is a fascinating material because of its nature: relatively pliable, beautiful surface finish and thermal conductivity. That makes it an excellent choice for holding liquids, whether hot or cold, and in our case, a handsome beer mug. The 8515 Tankard here is hammered by hand to deliver an uneven texture on the body that plays with the light reflected on it, while the cover and handles are in a polished finish.

The 8515 collection explores the use of textures in various ways on pewter to deliver a different take on the material, and the punching and hammering executions here offer a playful style. This airtight tea caddy is excellent for keeping items fresh, be it tea leaves or some other material to seal from its surroundings.

Windows 10 is great as an operating system, even for Mac-familiar operatives such as us. But Windows laptops typically look rather unexciting. The new lightweight Zenbooks are sexy, however, with impressive performance and sleek designs that reek of style, especially this exclusive black number.
