The Polar Ice Bucket is the coolest design you could ask for on a hot summer day. With its all-white and clear finish with a polar bear figurine being the focal point, this ice bucket epitomizes the idea of ice, snow and coldness. But Qualy, the designer of this product, expresses another theme. The bucket's clever design includes a compartment for ice as well as a second bowl that collects water. The melted ice will eventually flood the polar bear, reminding us of global warming's effect.

Qualy is a company based in Bangkok. Since Thailand is a country with no natural snow, it makes sense that Qualy felt the need to express how valuable it is to preserve the cold. The company's envision of what the arctic would look like is clearly expressed through this ice bucket design.
