Up-Coaster / cup coaster

Up-Coaster
Up-Coaster

Up-Coaster is a rubber coaster which can be easily transformed into a perfect thermal lagging. With the smart structure, by easily pulled up, Up-Coaster changes into the thermal lagging protecting your hand considerately.
The Up-Coaster style is inspired by the paper-cut, a Chinese traditional folk handicraft, on which with a couple of cuts, the panel can be magically transformed into a concave.
Up-Coaster utilizes a soft, heat-proof and skid-proof rubber which makes it easy to adapt to containers of any size. More amazingly, the texture helps people hold containers easily and protects containers especially glass if they fall to the ground.
