There would be a great market for the Alibi Travel Mug among the office workers who have the convenience of coffee shops within their buildings. The subtly sculptural teacups have been designed specifically to reduce the number of styrofoam and paper cups being handed out and thrown out at takeout java joints worldwide, by offering an appealing alternative that is a reusable vessel.

Francois Hurtaud and Alexandre Avranches worked together on this swift three-day project and conceived a graceful-looking coffee cup made from porcelain. It's the sort that you probably wouldn't want to lug around much in your briefcase or take on a ten-minute stroll down the city streets, but it would be great for getting refills in the office kitchen or from the cafe downstairs. The Alibi Travel Mug also comes with a cork stopper to seal in the heat that also functions as a coaster to protect your desktop. Stats for Elegant Lug-a-Mugs Trending: Older & Chilly
