Swiss Army Coffee Cup

Did you know that Starbuck’s Coffee sells on average 30 MILLION cups of coffee a day? That’s almost 11 BILLION cups of coffee a year! As impressive as that statistic may be, the flip side of their fortune building is the tons and tons of wasted paper and plastic involved with every single caffeine fix. Designer Christopher Panopoulos does not have a solution for all that waste, but he does want the ubiquitous coffee cup to serve double duty and be slightly more sustainable. How about a Willy Wonka inspired edible lid? Or a lid that flips into an ashtray? I’m not sure what his intention is with these other two designs but regardless, he got us here at Yanko Design thinking… how would you repurpose a cup of coffee?

    I would make it unnecessary by bringing in my KleanKanteen insulated stainless steel bottle with the stainless steel lined cap (no food to plastic contact).

    The face cup or ''kiss cup", indicates a metaphorical and humorous approach to consumers love for coffee sealed with a kiss. Designed to be used as a publicity stunt from large coffee companies such as Starbucks who would endorse a famous actors face or just their lips to advertise (as sports brands do) to increase sales, promote the brand and possibly promote an upcoming movie and at the same time making the product a selectors/collectors item. Imagine Angelina Jolie’s lips or Johnny Depp’s face 3D vacuumed on a disposable coffee cup.

    The sleeve Concept is an experiment that intends to make more from less out of the cup sleeve, by ripping of the logo it transforms into a coaster.

    Enjoy….
