Designer: James McKay
Location: Melbourne, Australia
UpperCup is a minimalist design created by Australia-based designer James McKay. The product is currently looking for seed funding on the crowd-funding site Pozible. UpperCup is the simple, elegant and functional cup inspired by the daily coffee travels and the notion that good design can make everyone’s favorite rituals even more enjoyable. UpperCup is about celebrating a culture of good design and creativity.
The designers decided to use the patented plastic, Tritan for UpperCup after an exhaustive search to find the highest quality material. The material is long lasting and durable. It has a high quality finish and is high density, meaning it will never absorb smells or flavors so the only thing you’ll taste is your favorite coffee. The cup is manufactured in the designer’s hometown of Melbourne, and they strongly believe in sourcing locally and growing sustainably while helping the community.
