Maybe it’s because I went to engineering school for a while, or maybe it’s because I see the geometry that is associated with good design, but these mugs made me smile. I love the fact that they have the mathematical formula on them. I love the fact that they are named Zero Gravity. I love the fact that they stand on edge precariously balancing your cup of coffee.
Designed by the Shanghai based firm Xu54 this porcelain mug works because of the exact slope at which it sits.
