Valuable land / coaster

Valuable land
Valuable land

The basis of this design is the use of temperature sensitive materials. They are all frozen at room temperature; the ice on the coasters melts gradually with the temperature rises above cups, and eventually becomes the pattern of the water. The melting of polar ice has become a very serious problem because of global warming; and this increases the fun of interaction between man and product, thus drawing our attention to the problem of global warming.
