BACKGROUND

During the busy day life, a cup of warm coffee or tea may be the best moment. The coffee that gradually get cold after a long meeting might break this precious experience. How to keep our coffee warm become one of the most important thing in the office. I decided to design a electronic mug which can heat up the mug and keep the drink warm. 

“How to keep the tea and coffee warm after a long meeting?” 

DESIGN PROCESS

In order to convey the feeling of warm up the tea, I decided to bring the pattern of gradient wave. Also, inspired by the Asia tea set, I designed a heating device with saucer and wish it can create a wonderful tea or coffee time for user.
