Conceived with the perfect pour in mind, the F!NK Water Jug, designed by Canberra’s late Robert Foster, is an Australian design icon that seamlessly unites refined form and function. Described as one of the most recognisable Australian design objects, the jug was commissioned in 1993 as a limited release for a Canberra restaurant opening. The early prototype was refined and its manufacturing streamlined before being released as the signature piece for Foster’s then fledgling design company, F!NK + Co.
