Move over Campbells,we Brits have got our own soup icon. The Heinz Tomato soup can, originally designed 10o years ago has been re-released and is available from Fortnum & Mason.

I had to pop along and buy myself a piece of history. And at 80p, it was perhaps the best bargain Design Classic I’ve ever found. The design may be 100 years old, but the soup still tastes great! Afterwards a nourishing lunch, I was able to put it to stylish use on my desk…
