These jugs may look like a smart piece of modern designā€”because they areā€”but they're also modelled on the most important muscle of all: the beating heart in your chest.

Called CorazĆ³n Corazaā€”literally, Heart Shellā€”they're a stylized and yet surprisingly accurate version of the human blood pump. The designer, Christian Vivanco, collaborated with Mexican ceramics manufacturer Ɓnfora to create the jugs, having been inspired by the Uruguayan poet Mario BenedettiĀ“s work.

They're not hugeā€”they contain about enough liquid for one or two glassesā€”but they look beautiful. Sadly, the first run was limited to just 100 units, and they were all sold at the Zona Maco Art Fair. Hopefully they'll go into full-scale production soon. [Christian Vivanco via Design Milk]
