BowlMug / Cup / Cup

BowlMug / Cup
BowlMug / Cup

BowlMug is the fusion of Eastern bowl and Western mug in both the usage and form.

Unlike general mugs, the space in-between the handle expands to the cup body, which not only allows the general usage of grabbing the handle but also allows the holding of the palm.
For the elderly or disabled person who has difficulties using their fingers to grab the handle of heavy mug, it is easier and more stable to use the strength of palm.

BowlMug can hold water, soup or hot/cool beverage. The ceramic body can store more heat in the thick base for keeping the contents warm. Furthermore, inside the cup, the round bottom is easy for cleaning.
