Ember Technologies, Inc. (Ember®), a design-led temperature control brand, today announced the launch of the highly anticipated black Ceramic Mug in partnership with MoMA Design Store. Following the incredibly successful debut of the white Ceramic Mug in November 2017, Ember is furthering the company's design story with a new, ultra-modern, matte black version launching at MoMA Design Stores and online at It will be available Wednesday, May 16, 2018, and is exclusive to MoMA Design Store for a limited time. The classic white Ember Ceramic Mug will also be available for purchase at the above locations.

"Our collaboration with MoMA Design Store for the launch of the black Ceramic Mug signifies our commitment to being a design-led brand," said Clay Alexander, Founder and CEO of Ember.  "From the beginning of Ember, creating an advanced tech product that puts design and the human experience first was paramount. I love beautiful design, and we specifically engineered Ember so the technology recedes to the background, ensuring that the elegance of the product was not compromised with numerous screens, buttons and lights. MoMA Design Store is the epitome of modern design and I could not be more thrilled for our partnership."

Featuring world-class design and advanced technology, the Ember Ceramic Mug enhances the coffee and tea drinking experience by maintaining your perfect drinking temperature from the first sip to the last drop. The new colorway ties into current home trends, with designers and architects embracing matte black in all aspects of interior design.

"We love the clean, modern design of Ember and when we tested it, we knew it would fit exceptionally well into our Design Store," said Joe Weiner, Product Manager Merchandising, Retail at MoMA. "The MoMA consumer has a discerning eye, and when they come to our store, they are looking for something unexpected yet incredibly functional and brilliantly designed. The Ember Ceramic Mug checks all these boxes and more."

Made of durable stainless steel with a ceramic coating, the Ember Ceramic Mug has a minimal, refined design and a discrete, technical interface, making it simple and easy to use. Embedded with multiple temperature sensors and a microprocessor-controlled dual-band heating system, the Ember Ceramic Mug maintains coffee or tea at the user's precise drinking temperature.

The Ember Ceramic Mug connects to the Ember mobile app, allowing users to select their precise drinking temperature with a swipe of a finger. The app remembers the user's preferred drinking temperature and has several preset options for easy customization for drinks such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. The app also notifies users when their desired drinking temperature has been reached, and lets users identify their mug by selecting a personal color that will display on a small LED light located toward the base of the mug.

The black Ceramic Mug is the third core product in Ember's collection, joining the Ember Travel Mug and the white Ceramic Mug. The Travel Mug launched in 2016 and won Silver for the IDSA International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA). The white Ceramic Mug launched in 2017 and sold out within weeks. It was also named one of TIME magazine's Best Inventions of 2017.

In addition to MoMA Design Store, the new black Ember Ceramic Mug will be available on starting on May 16, 2018, followed by distribution in Starbucks stores across the U.S. in June - just in time for Father's Day. The Ember black Ceramic Mug retails for $79.95. Additional Ember products and accessories are also available on
