Sometimes you have to wonder how many designers test out the handles of their teacups before sending the prototype out for manufacturing. It's surprising that vessels like the Kruzhkus Mug are a rarity, taking account of every digit and the heat and weight of the dish when it's full.

A great deal of people grip their coffee cups with just their index finger since it is often difficult to fit two inside the loop without scorching any skin. Art Lebedev Studio's model works with this common way to grasp a mug by warping the lower part of the arm in to accommodate the middle finger. Still remaining a safe distance from the hot ceramic surface, the Kruzhkus Mug's handle contributes to the comfort of sipping a delicious warm drink.
