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?

    Red dot design award winner I believe. Somehow.
    Suggestions to the designers: turn the shadow quality up on hypershot, that will get rid of jagged shadown.

    Couple of things, there is now lip shown so the top piece will slide around on that top plane.
    Also, with material that thin, the heat is going to transfer easily, you are definitely going to burn yourself.
