Japanese design studio Nendo is known for creating objects with out-of-the-box designs, such as their double helix chopsticks. Starbucks is one of their recent clients, and the studio has given the coffee chain’s classic white mugs an adorably unique makeover.
You know how Starbucks magically creates those caramel hatch patterns or foamy swirls at the top of their drinks? Well, Nendo came up with graphics for the bottom of the chain’s classic mug. Three designs are available — latte, Americano and caramel macchiato — and are strikingly realistic. So when you knock one of these over, it’ll confuse the heck out of onlookers.
According to the studio, it’s “a design that represents Starbucks’ worldview: of feeling fulfilled, and seeing the world as half-full, never half-empty.”
As of right now, these cups are set to be released in Starbucks Japan.
