Posted by James Fodera in News | Tags coffee in english,mugs,cafes,mug design,designer article It’s been a while since we’ve seen a coffee mug, but that’s changing with a new design from artist Fodda that will come in three flavours – sweet, sour and savoury.
The coffee mug is an innovative concept and it’s going to be a hit with coffee drinkers everywhere, especially those who prefer their coffee fresh.
“I wanted to create something that’s not just a standard coffee mug but something you can make with your own hands, that’s easy to carry around and that’s fun to wear,” Fodara says.
“Coffee can be a challenge, but if you think about it, it’s really easy to do.
You just pour the hot water into the mug, turn it on and it does it’s thing.”
Fodera’s original design was inspired by a coffee maker called the “Big Boy” which was popularised by a film series.
He says he came up with the idea to create a coffee cup that was unique in the world of coffee makers.
“When I first saw the Big Boy, I was inspired to make something that would take me back to the coffee shop,” Foddas creative director, Mark Fodoras, explains.
“We wanted to take the coffee maker and create a cup that’s like a coffee pot, it has a lid and it has coffee grounds inside.”
Fodda says that, like a lot of things in life, he is influenced by his favourite places.
“It’s an interesting thing to look back on and look at the coffee that you grew up drinking, where you lived, where the culture is, where your friends were growing up, what your favourite dishes were, all of these things are influenced by places you grew and loved,” he says.
Fodoras explains that he’s been making coffee for nearly five years, starting out as a hobby and working his way up to making full-time art.
He’s been using his own hands to create the design for the coffee mug and he hopes it will be a popular product in the coming years.
“The idea behind this design is to show that people can make their own coffee,” he explains.
“It’s not necessarily about the ingredients, it is about the experience of brewing it and it is something that I think people are really going to enjoy.”
