THRIVE’s Industrial Design Collaboration with Mars Drinks the FLAVIA CREATION® 500 Launches in Europe & the United States.
Mars Drinks has launched THRIVE’s latest product design the Flavia Creation 500, the most recent advancement in the company’s line of premium, single-served brewers for the workplace. Mars Drinks’ Creation 500 blends stylish design with enhanced drink and menu display options designed to deliver optimal performance.
Creation 500 features a new compact, modern design with both plumbed and pour-over options for easy placement in multiple office locations, from the boardroom to the breakroom. Creation 500 brews premium cappuccinos, lattes and mochas, plus coffees, teas and hot chocolate each in less than a minute at the touch of a button. The latest product design of the new brewer combines reliable performance and hassle-free maintenance with enhanced LCD menu display options for a more intuitive experience, including the addition of Spanish language options, making it easier than ever for people at work to create and enjoy a cup of their favorite brew.
To satisfy the drink needs of people at work throughout the day, Creation 500 also features an option for brewing soup. The company’s patented brewing process ensures no cross-over in flavour from one drink to the next, so coffee tastes like coffee and soup tastes like soup.
Mars Drinks collaborated with Atlanta, GA-based THRIVE for the Industrial Design and the Engineering of the new brewer. “In THRIVE we found an excellent partner for product development,” said Julio Moreira, Global Vice President R&D and Product Development “Working together, the Mars Drinks and THRIVE teams designed—in a record time—our new Creation 500 professional hot drinks brewer. It has been enthusiastically received by our customers in the U.S. and abroad,” he said.
