Sometimes it is the essence of simplicity that emerges as the greatest virtue of a design. This is aptly demonstrated by the Toastymug, a ceramic mug hand-crafted by the expert artisans of Montelupo, a little town near Florence in Italy.
As we can make out from the images, the classy looking Toastymug showcases a special albeit simple design that allows us to ‘slide’ our fingers inside the contrivance. Tailored for cold climates, this novel and ingenious arrangement keeps our hands warm from the heat of the beverage.
The enveloping structure also plays it role in the overall balancing act. Judging by the large size of the mug, we can safely presume that it holds quite a copious amount of beverage. So, we can use both of our hands to support the bulky weight of our favorite hot drink.
Finally, coming to the commercial side of affairs, each Toastymug will set you back by €44 (around $60). For buying details, refer to this link.
