INSPIRATION:
A few years ago I was in London (educational practice). There in cafe there were problems with spoons and sticks for mixing sugar or milk. Somehow I took a cup and started rotating for to stir drink. The idea was born in this moment. The design of a product was inspired by beauty of natural forms, grace of an undisclosed flower.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Innovative cup for coffee or tea which mixing ingredients without spoon. It rotates around its pivot-center on a stand-saucer by a push hand. Special pear-shaped design and the ribs which are inclined towards rotation provide good mixing drinks and prevent a spillage (streams of liquid go down). There is no more discomfort from a spoon hitting the cup. The process of drinking coffee or tea obtains a shade of a beautiful game.

After a push hand the cup continues independently to rotate around its pivot-center on a special stand-saucer.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Some people did not believe that the model can work. Therefore the main method of our research was the prototyping. At first it was a hand-made, and then the 3D-printing.

CHALLENGE:
We wanted to make a structurally simple but impressive design. Much attention has been paid to the efficiency and usability. The hardest thing was combine the rotation, the usual forms of cup and safety. We made several prototypes that would achieve the perfect shape with sufficient stability of rotation. So has been added the axis on the saucer, pear-shaped cup, and the ribs inclined in the direction of rotation.
