Cupple Coffee Mug & Holder

I have mixed feelings about the way the handle of this cup is shaped, but I do feel that the storage solution is quite smart. The mug’s handle interlocks with the rubber wall mounted holder, making it easy to grab or deposit.

Stamp Mugs

I love the idea of taking an inherent flaw of something and turning it into an advantage. This concept takes the familiar coffee ring and elevates it to something unexpected yet welcome. I saw these on this great design site a long time ago but, as far as I know, they weren’t available for purchase. Finally, it’s been picked up by a retailer in the US.

Stemmarkers by Eric Janssen

These clever little glass trackers were designed by Eric Janssen. You clip them on to your glass rim/ stem so that everybody knows which glass belongs to whom. Handy, huh? And, please don’t take offense, but these are much better than those wire things that you have to fasten on and jingle around.

as unica puts it:
“janssen displays a no-nonsense approach to form, often derived from simplified geometry or a particular method of production. his keen interest in materials, emphasis on product functionality, and subtle sense of humor also factor largely in his work.”

Made of non-toxic EVA foam.
Set of ten disks comes stacked on a spool for convenient storage.
Each disk approximately 1″ in diameter.
