50 Dynamic Drinking Cups

From Lip-Locking Coffee Cups to Beer-Concealing Cups

— September 14, 2015 — Art & Design
These dynamic drinking cups demonstrate the ability to take simple everyday objects and through efficient design, drastically improve their functionality.

Cups serve a basic yet necessary function -- and with some ingenuity, a lot of designers have improved on this drinking fundamental. In terms of functionality, cups have been improved in a multitude of ways -- ranging from anti-slip cups to designs that can be used right-side-up or upside down.

A big innovation comes in the form of design, making it possible to appeal to a fandom or send a positive message. Whether you're expressing your love for Adventure Time with a cult cartoon cup or establishing yourself as a Harry Potter fan with divination-inspired vessels, you can find plenty of cups to express your interests.
