Once upon a time there was such a thing as a tea-break. And in that tea-break you might have had a cool idea. What did you do? No smartphones handy to quickly jot off an update to your blog, so you used a notepad and pen. Return to those days with the Poem Cup and Saucer – a groovy looking teacup and saucer with built-in pen holder. Maybe if you had a teacup like this your boss would reinstate the tea-break. I wonder if the pen is dishwasher safe? US$40.
Working around the clock, cell phones in the middle of the night, googling this and that. How do we reconcile our physical needs with our virtual bodies? Katarina Hšllís graduation project is a comment on a world spinning faster and faster. The Poem cup offers a moment of reflection, a meditative break in the rush of everyday life.
