Western society loves technology, and these Coffee_Interface mugs by Alex Nesterenko are the perfect example of ways in which it infiltrates even low-tech trinkets.

Each individual teacup takes the futuristic form of a cube, and four of its facets picture different computer commands. These are the buttons found in the upper right corner of an active window on a computer's monitor, while a look at the saucer reveals a open window itself.

A red X represents Exit, while commands for minimizing and reducing the view size of a program are also present on the sides of the coffee cup. The top bar of the saucer is a tiny trough that receives a small cursor spoon, and the whole Coffee_Interface collection lined up bears a striking familiarity to the digital symbols you see each day.
