French designers Florian Dussopt, Jérémie Reneau and Julie Girard do not like the unhygienic use of the same spoon among many cups. So they came up with the Ceramix For Mix saucer and cup design, introducing a new way of stirring sugars in your drink without a spoon. Their quest for function created an new gestural and aesthetic appeal of the ceramic and glass material.

Implications - The way the device works is by putting a ball into a special glass of a certain shape. When you pour liquid into the glass the ball gets pushed and users can then move around the ball by rotating their cup. When you take a drink, the ball doesn't move because it is "blocked by the gravity in the recess of the glass." Stats for Spoonless Stirring Trending: Older & Chilly
