Free Handle / Mug Cup

Free Handle
Free Handle

With the demand for coffee and tea increasing, the demand for a mug has also increased. Generally, people use a mug with a handle when they drink warm coffee or tea. However, in the course of using a mug, there frequently happen the cases where
a handle is more easily destroyed than a cup itself. In addition, at a time of keeping it, its space efficiency is noticeably down due to the volume of a handle.
Accordingly, this writer is suggesting the design with a cup and handle as an respective individual. This writer minimized the shock and damage to the part where a mug and handle directly touch by using rubber materials.
