This project is about ‘social interaction’. Nowadays we tend to create virtual and superficial friendships, keeping people at a distance. This is why I wanted to create a design object that stimulates people to come together and connect in a social way. This idea is reflected in my design: the cups can’t function without the leather rings and vice versa. They're inseparable. And so is true friendship or love.
