The Floating Mug: No Coaster Required


For mornings when you're too bleary to get out a toaster to prevent marks on your marble table, may we suggest the stunningly ingenious Floating Mug. One of those why-haven't-they-thought-of-this-yet inventions, designer Tigere Chiriga hit upon the idea of a mug with its base lifted up the ground when he saw a, of all things, banana holder in his kitchen.

Because he wanted to keep the aesthetic clean and streamlined, he chose to work with white porcelain, and modified the shape of a typical mug so that the curved handle would function as a coaster by itself. Perfect for coffee, tea or hot chocolate, this is such a beautiful object, we'll want to leave it lying around the house for guests to stumble upon. Wait for oohs and ahhs to ensue.
