My theme of semester work was drinking set. I thought about using porcelain like a material which can keep the temperature. I transfared the function from hot drinks to cold.
The waterflow is a very typical element for carafe and cup. I try to used the experience with water in the design shape of carafe. I chose a long spout because it is interesting both iconically and functionally. The spout can remind us of a eaves for water from the roofs.
I personally love drinking water with fruit inside. But I have one problem with it – I hate when the fruit goes to the control. Cup without ear have the shape of carafe. It have nose cutout, so you do not have to tilt your head so much.
