ToastyMUG—hand warmer mug

Sabrina Fossi Design

Our expert Sabrina Foss designed this ergonomic bowl in which we can slide our hands so we never burn our fingers. This the perfect way for us to drink hot tea, snuggled up on the living room couch on a winter evening! Finally, we can enjoy the warmth generated by the mug, without getting hurt. This is definitely a clever idea that we wish had been thought of earlier! 

Gioia Collection

Francesca Macchi offers us a huge range of mugs in her latest collection. You can choose the one that will meet your taste and personality best. Discover the collection Gioia, a diverse choice of polka dots, stripes, and diamonds. Simple geometric forms ooze with flair and creativity, making this collection feel as though it was dreamed up by one of the masters of 20th century design. 

A tasty coffee

Tassimo Tassen

InDezign

Preparing a good coffee is not easy, and thankfully, some brands are so happy to give us a boost by simplifying things. It is true, at least for some, that a good espresso or Italian coffee will never be matched. Clear out your cupboards, and make sure you enjoy a cup of coffee or three with Tassimo.

Spot of tea?

If you are a tea drinker, it is with no doubt that you love to see vintage styled pots, cups and saucers. For some, this has become an obsession, and collecting these little gems of history make their tea time even more special. There's not need to hold off on using the good china for when there are guests around. Go to work with a little extra swing in your step with this traditionally decorated tea set. And of course, be the envy of your freinds and family. 

Stack 'em

Muka Design Lab offers us Tetazas. Tetazas is the combination of two Spanish words that form a single word in the language of the Iberian Peninsula. 'Teta' means 'breast' and 'taza' cup, the two combined form 'tetaza' whose meaning is literally 'big breasts'! Sure, this is a little crass, but you cannot deny that you didn't just have a little chuckle at the name. After all, their design is very similar to the udder of a cow. Jokes aside, these ceramic cups are made by artisans in the Basque Country, so they support a unique and growing industry.
