Decompression cup / cup

Decompression cup

This cup is a marked decompression cup design. The design point comes from the involuntary movement of the finger under the pressure and thinking. The involuntary movement of the finger will follow the process of thinking; adding this unconscious action to the cup can be used. In the process of holding the cup and thinking, the finger can gently move the wooden ring on the cup body according to the rhythm of thinking, and slowly straighten out the thinking. It can also ease the tension. After work, the numb fingers can achieve the effect of decompression.
