Lovisa Wattman mugs – pure genius

On my visit to Stockholm, I picked up a set of two mugs by industrial designer Lovisa Wattman.  Since unpacking said mugs from their cocoon of bubblewrap, I’m happy to report that they are pure genius.

Genius mugs

I must admit I had my doubts about using a mug sans handle for my coffee, which seems to be the practice at cafes in Stockholm.  However, these mugs are genius – they keep my coffee warm and my hands cool.  This to me is what fabulous design is all about:  incredibly functional and great looking.  My only small complaint is that I wish the rubber base was a bit sturdier for us clumsy folks.

Sadly Lovisa Wattman mugs are not available in Canada as far as I can tell (please someone prove me wrong!)  You can order them online from the uber cool design store Designtorget http://www.designtorget.se/designtorget/se/
