Old Time / cup

Old Time

I design house, train, and ship shaped cup lids, to bring perceptual Aesthetics to our daily life. I am inspired by the steam of the hot water in the cup. It is a rethink about steamas a visual signal in real life. When the cup is covered, steam comes from the hole, which would make you feel the charm of nature in use. You would get new emotional experience every time you cover the cupwith the specially designed lid.
