These Drink Rocks by Runa Klock were recently featured on The New York Times Style Blog, in an article titled Five Up-and-Coming Norwegian Design Talents to Know Now, by Monica Khemsurov.
"Runa Klock’s portfolio contains plenty of chairs, coffee tables and shelves, but her specialty lies at the intersection of design and food — she spends half her time running a successful artisanal apple juice brand that’s become a Norwegian grocery store staple, and she collaborated with top Oslo chef Even Ramsvik on a line of specialty dishware. Her set of soapstone and marble drink rocks for Areaware, which keeps cocktails cool without diluting them, is her only product available stateside."
