Here is another project from the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, this time Israeli student Sharona Merlin has designed a flattened cup and saucer.
Slim Cup has the outline of an archetypal cup when viewed from one side but when turned 90 degrees almost disappears.
The ceramic molded cup and saucer form a part of wider collection of slim tableware currently in progress.
All photographs are taken by Sasha Flit.
Here's some more from the designer:
I'm an industrial design student from Israel, studying at "Shenkar College of Engineering and Design", starting my third year out of four. The project is made for a course of ceramic molding I took on the last semester. The title of the course was "Combination of tradition and technology" and my interpretation for this title was the way things get slimmer as technology moves forword.
Therefore, my concept was taking the traditional ceramic cup and making it slimmer. My vision was seeing the cup's icon on the front side but as it turns, it's slimness appears. I'm now working on designing a line of slim ceramics tableware.
