Tea Coffee

Lotus Teacup

This is one high-tech teacup for those of you that are serious about tea. Follow the link to read more.

It looks like every traditional teacup should, but for starters it’s double walled, so a) you won’t burn your hands and b) your tea won’t cool off as fast. Secondly its sliding lid is a beautiful piece of high tech, as it is truly integrated into the lid and all you do is you slide a separate piece up and you are ready to enjoy your tea.

Both mug and box designed by John Caserta. Mugs screened by Maslen, Inc. in Pawtucket. Boxes made for The Design Office by Custom Corrugated and screenprinted by Tarvis Graphics in Pawtucket.

Radiator Mug

Pretty smart interpretation for keeping your beverages hot and your hand comfortable…

“the radiator mug designed by stephen reed is a refreshing departure from the traditional handle-style mug. instead of relying on that handle to allow you to hold a hot beverage, the radiator’s stylish and functional fins do the trick, providing just enough contact to keep your hand warm. the radiator mug is a must-have for those who appreciate its industrial style, or those who simply prefer that their everyday objects possess a little more flair.”
