The Giraffe Cup by Raul Lazaro Revolves Around a Stilt-Like Design

The Giraffe Cup is named so for the long legs that have been incorporated into its design. The only thing that would complete the inspiration is if the handle had been made to look like a sweepingly bent neck. Yet the Giraffe Cup is quirky enough without it. Although there seems no other purpose to the addition of the legs, the tweaked aesthetic of the classic mug certainly goes a long way.

Designed by Raúl Lázaro, the Giraffe Cup is handmade out of porcelain with white matte varnishing. According to the designer, "It's a friendly cup with your guests which is not only a conversation-starter, but makes reaching a cup on a low coffee table easy, too."
