Name: Floating Mug
Designer: Tigere Chiriga
Location: North Carolina, USA
Floating Mug is a minimalist design created by Tigere Chiriga for Kickstarter. The designer wanted to eliminate the use of a coaster while maintaining high-quality materials and a unique aesthetic. The result is a stunning, yet functional mug made of porcelain that looks as though it is floating. The floating mug solves the problem of leaving rings and stains on the table.
To improve on both the function and aesthetic of an age-old established design is an incredible feat. Chiriga’s redesign of the mug is minimally sleek – futuristic, even – but does not stray too far away from the original ubiquitous mug design. I am definitely going to keep my eyes on this Kickstarter project.
