Yes, they're actually real. And these are just the tip of the art school iceberg. There's a demitasse that looks like Swiss cheese, one that takes the nose from Michaelangelo's David, a “digitally eroded” cup, a cup with eight handles…
The cups are designed as a creative exercise and as a proof of concept for digital fabrication, in order to achieve something unthinkable some time ago: Create a product from the idea to the consumer in less than 24 hours.
Some designs are compromised due to time constrains, but that’s OK.
Not all the cups are ment to be the best and most functional of all coffee cups ever, they are designed with style, fun and diversity on mind.
