Our Favourite Cup / Communication Cup

Our Favourite Cup
Our Favourite Cup

The concept “Our Favourite Cup” helps to maintain the bond between people over long distances by providing them with a tool to share a moment together. If the grandmother is drinking a cup of tea in Munich, the granddaughter’s cup in Berlin would begin to glow drawing her attention; she would think of her grandmother and join her by drinking tea as well, with the result being that her grandmother’s cup would also begin to glow. They would then be sharing a cup of tea together, thinking of each other, and reminiscing.
