Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

Air Dried And Bacteria Free!

One of the best and hygienic ways of drying the dishes is airing them. Nothing like some good old sunrays to do the job! Stackable Cups encourages this habit by featuring four projections that allow the water to drain out completely, when you stack glasses one-on-top-of-the-other. Stacked wet glasses generally stick to each other and pulling them apart can get tricky; so this design kinda resolves that issue too. Moreover, they make the set look kitsch!

Balanced Diet For Two

Balanced Diet For Two

So you lovebirds think you can lead a balanced life, eat balanced meals and stay on the same wavelength on every issue? I got a test for you two; try eating from this SeeSaw Dining Plate! It’s got only one rule….the plate must stay balanced at all times; similar pace with similar actions will help you through! If you’re out of sync, you’ll break the equilibrium and obviously fail my test. Hands Up all those who would like to give it a try!

For The Love Of Coffee

For The Love Of Coffee

I think I’ve confessed one too many times that tho I’m a coffee addict, I just can’t spend too much time nurturing it. There are actually freaks like me who LOVE instant coffee and don’t want to do the grinding-percolating routine. Which is why I simply adore this ceramic-glass fusion called Coffee Set. It’s a cup with a slotted bottom that holds in just right amount of coffee powder and water, for you to stir the mixture with the handle. Yup no spoons required! The design gets even more interesting with the saucer, which has a missing bottom!

Considering a Slice of Cake

Considering a Slice of Cake

Yay let’s have a party! I’d eat cake every day if I could! I remember when I first went to college, I ate icecream every night. Designers at WAGAii are considering how to cut the cake. Really! Each box of Petals consists of a single plastic flower. With it, you can cut a cake perfectly into 3, 4, 6, 12, 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10 pieces. I didn’t get lost in there! There’s two ways to cut! So many options, one single flower of plastic.

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

I’m suffering from cute overload because this concept is just too… well, cute! The Children’s Cutlery and Dinner Set (they can do better than that) attempts to tie in the joys of eating with a bit of education. Kids can learn about animals while training to use flatware. Where’s the adult version huh? I want lions, panthers, bears, and a platypus. Yea a PLATYPUS. I want the plate to be a training stage for real manly eating – a Mortal Combat dining experience if you will.

For The Aging Chinese In A Western-styled Care Facility

For The Aging Chinese In A Western-styled Care Facility

The LUNE Dinnerware may have noble intentions but somehow it negates the pure essence of porcelain and art. Craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal is top-notch: the dishes incorporate culturally familiar forms and symbols that are raised to promote better posture and thermal for keeping the food warm. Design Philosophy-wise; it’s this Chinese style dishes meant for retirement homes and homes for the aged where Western-styled cuisine is served to Oriental folks.

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

There is a reason why this coffee mug is called the Radiator Mug, the bottom fins (called heat sinks) take inspiration from the radiator mechanics found within the PC or an engine, to keep things cool. Likewise these ceramic fins eliminate the need for a handle and keep your hands cool while holding a steaming cuppa coffee/tea.

Sometimes Using The Finger Is Better

Sometimes Using The Finger Is Better

If you ask me I’d say yes, but spoons and stirrers are there for a reason too. While you linger over the double meaning, let’s just grab some coffee in this special cup and imagine how we would stir in the milk and sugar if none of the above implements were at hand. With our fingers of course! And that too via its flexible lid; poke a finger through and get stirring mister! “Finger Coffee” Anyone?

Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Sorry, wrong menu but right intentions… The On the Road Ceramic Breakfast Set is purposely crafted to resemble a Traffic Cone. Why? Simply to add the fun elements to ceramics plus to give you an espresso cup, juice glass, tea cup, cereal bowl and a small plate, in one go. Super cute and super simple, that’s the way to go!

Zen Habit While Dining, But Only For Kids

Zen Habit While Dining, But Only For Kids

I don’t believe in force-feeding children, but tots try and do their best to make meal-times really hell-times. A trick that I learnt while bringing up my kids was to entertain them with fancy dining accessories, so that they would at least stick to the meal for a wee-bit longer. I used to engage them with pictorial placemats, funny-shaped plates and bowls. Co Zen Maple Lacquer Cutlery Set is for the stage when children outgrow Mothercare but still need some cajoling during meals.

This Time Tea = Time

This Time Tea = Time

If you’ve been living the fast lane for a real long time, maybe you need to slow down, relax, and have a cup of tea. Designed to replicate the art of slow-motion-during-Tea Ceremony, TEA=TIME is an attempt by designer Erez Bar-Am to make you comfy with this wide-rimmed teacup and unique sugar bubbles. These sugar bubbles float on the tea for 10 seconds, creating little bubbles on the surface till they dissolve. Enigmatic and a real leisure proposal; something we time-bound-deadline-slaves deserve.
