Originally designed in 1957, the Cocktail Shaker’s sleek, stainless steel contours transcend time, while Dan Chelea’s Martini Chiller moves forward in design and practicality. The sophisticated cone-shaped, lead crystal glass ice holder chills the martini in between sips. It’s also a cool setting for gelato, frozen drinks, and caviar. Available through the Museum of Modern Art (800-447-6662; www.momastore.org). Shaker: $79; Chiller: $36.
