my cup by efrat gommeh

‘my cup’ by efrat gommeh

lock cup‘ by israeli designer efrat gommeh is an ex-equo honorable mention of the designboom ‘design a key and what it opens’ competition with beck’s. the design features a hole which prevents individuals, other than the owner, from using the mug, accompanied by a key to close the hole so that the drinking vessel then becomes usable.

now gommeh’s design fittingly goes by the name of ‘my cup’ and is for sale online by schneider. it measures 10cm high and 8cm in diameter and utilizes removable silicone plugs which the owner keeps possession of for use. so, if you’re tired of your co-workers using your favorite mug, this may be your answer!

  • I will use my every last bit of energy to pull out that plug while the coffee is sitting above some nice anal Mac.

  • We need it????

  • Does it get any more phallic than this?

  • Never mind the mug, I’ve always wanted a gnome penis key ring!

  • have fun drinking glue particles that detach from the duct tape. non-fossil-based plastics for the plug and say goodbye to bisphenol a. enjoy your coffee!
