Mugs
Intentionally on the very edge of usability, this project takes ubiquitous objects - in this case coffee mugs - and modifies them to question their banality. Designs with one oversized handle are juxtaposed with designs having two crossed handles, a multitude of handles, or no handle at all. The project invites users to question taken-for-granted assumptions on the objects surrounding them in everyday life. (C) 2002 Mario Gagliardi
