Finally someone has taken the thermos concept out of the lunch box and into the dining room in style. Bodum’s new double-walled drinking glasses ($12 to $20 a pair at bodumusa.com feature two layers of heat-resistant glass. Your drink is suspended in the inner layer, with a pocket of air in between to insulate sensitive fingers from hot espresso or, alternatively, prevent warm hands from melting ice cubes in soda. An added benefit: condensation is contained in the inner wall, eliminating the need for coasters. –By Deirdre van Dyk
