The Floating Mug is a brilliant cup innovation that will put an end to table stains.

It was created by Tigere Chiriga, who took inspiration from a banana holder. Chiriga is a big tea drinker, and that led him to come up with this clever design. It's an elevated mug that connects to a base, which acts as a coaster. This is ideal for coffee and tea drinkers who tend to spill while sipping on beverages.

The porcelain-made mug is separated from the table surface, and keeps materials like wood safe from high temperatures and stains. It can hold up a whole gallon of water and is pretty sturdy, until it falls and breaks like any other glass mug would. The Floating Mug by Tigere Chiriga is a simple, functional and funky way to drink your cup of tea. Stats for Illusory Levitating Cups Trending: Older & Warm
