After six years of research and development, Norwegian brand Oyster released the Oyster Tempo, a performance cooler featuring a patented integrated vacuum insulation system constructed with recyclable aluminum and chemical-free Silica. 

Oyster identified and optimized key thermal drivers to increase the cooler’s insulating performance—core insulation, thermal bridge and thermal conductivity— eliminating the need for ice. 

Compared to polyurethane coolers, recommending users fill two-thirds with ice, “Oyster Tempo delivers three times the internal space at nearly half the external size and stays three times colder for longer to deliver food-safe temperatures.”

 “The Oyster Tempo delivers maximum performance in a minimalist, eco-friendly cooler design,” said Ole Christian Sandberg, CEO of Oyster. “At Oyster, we are developing a new generation of products that help solve environmental challenges instead of creating new ones.”

 Oyster Tempo is designed to be taken apart without tools to clean, repair and recycle. The removable lid allows for easy clean and access to its contents from both sides, while the carrying strap and easy-grip handle offer different carry options.

 “At Oyster, our hope is to inspire others to challenge the status quo and see a world of opportunity at the intersection of technology, adventure and the environment,” said Ian Sandmæl, Oyster’s chief design officer and co-founder.
