Project Brief: Design and fabricate a cup and saucer inspired by Euclidian geometry and constructed using laser cut pieces of butter board.

This cup was inspired by my own personal familial connection to coffee: memories of my aunt (my Zia Chiara) downing cup after miniature cup of coffee made in a traditional Bialetti Moka machine. This small hexagonal cup fits perfectly in the folds of the palm, and the creases of the saucer allow it to be lifted with ease.
