Inspired by the shape of the traditional Finnish wooden kuksa mug the cappuccino cup is meant to be held and cherished as having a break around the campfire. In our memories coffee always tasted wonderful during these moments. The Cappuccino set brings the joy and tranquility of coffee drinking to your hands. The round shape invites a person to hold the warm cup and really own the moment to enjoy its content. The handle is designed to fit the palm and guide the cup's user to hold it as they would hold the wooden kuksa.
The full concept consists of a cappuccino cup and a milk foamer.
This project was awarded with the second price in the Muuto Talent Award 2013. Original concept by Anna van der Lei and Laura Timosaari.
