    porcelain cups
  • Not much to say, just an other strange set of cups from imreszti.
     
    In my designes I often create a new user experience to old functions. For example I try to find a new ways of holding a cup. Like this: 
  • The rings around the cup are creating a safe distance from the piping hot surface while giving the cup this quirky, spacey "futuristic from the 60's" look (which by the way was not 100% intentional).
  • I placed my monogramm in the middle inside. This way you only see it when you finished your cup of coffe and the leftover sits in the monogram drawing a contrast with the white surface. Just a fine touch that makes the experiance special in the end, "puts the dot on the 'i'".
  • The espresso cup fits in the cappuccino cup, creating a closed complete shape for storing.
  • Designing for one specific purpos can end up in many shapes. Also, one design can easily inspire the next one, or sideways of one projects can grow into a project of its own. This is sort of what happened here.
    While designing a set of cups for a cafe I had many ideas and tried a few different versions. So this set of cups is actually very close to the final design, but like a more extrem version of it.
  • Sneak peek in the making
  • Backround story
  • When I finished the first prototype and brought it home to test it in use MyOne had a very interesting discovery on the design. He insisted it looked like an alien creatures, called the Daleks, from the Doctor Who TV series, which he is quite a fond of. I must say there is a similarity. Ever since the working title Dalek-cups sticked to them and it got popular within the groups of Doctor Who fans.

  • And he is just a new fun of mine. So these cups are officially Vader-approved.
