Drop Rest / Mug (cup)

Drop Rest
Drop Rest

Drop Rest - A brown ring surround the mug
“Drop rest” is a mug with a little groove to stop drops of coffee falling down the surface of the cup. Because of the liquid characteristic like “surface tension”, liquid drops perfectly flow into the thin groove of the cup, and spread like a rollercoaster along the cut groove line without overflowing, even when some drops flow onto the same space, at once. Besides, they don’t flow down again, due to the fixation power(coherence) of liquid which tightly sticks to the groove, even if the cup inclines.
Rest line where coffee drops falling in an unexpected state, stay.This mug doesn’t leave any trace.
