Zhaoliangtian Chenpenyu / Repellent liqueur cup

Zhaoliangtian  Chenpenyu

In Chinese traditional when drinking on the gathering, people who propose a toast often lower their glasses to show respect and comity to the other person. While in modern life, this tradition is often ignored by some of them. We've borrowed the form of "Gobblet" from ancient China and added the U-shaped isotropic magnets on the rim of the cups which can make the cups repel each other when they are at the same level. This design reminds people the comity culture when they toast glasses.
