Jang Woo-Seok loves coffee and kisses. But it’s only coffee he gets on a daily basis – that is until he designed a cup lid that provides both.
The designer from South Korea has taken the common coffee cup lid and gave it puckering lips for B2B, a chain of coffee shops in his home country.
“I imagined people (having) pure joy when walking around with the kiss lid in hand,” Woo-Seok told Cult of Mac about a day in the cafe when he began sketching the idea.
The lids will make a lip-smacking debut sometime this week, he said.
The first prototype lid had only a kissable mouth. But then he “realized that the touch of the nose is an essential point in order to feel realistic.”
He used a Greek statue for inspiration but also wanted to ensure a friendly face coming at each coffee drinker.
Woo-Seok’s lids were featured in Wednesday’s edition of Design Boom.
