The conventional teacup form has been utterly exhausted for hundreds of years, to it's great to see a new stylistic suggestion, like of Papercup by Laurent Corio. It comprises the two usual components of a mug, namely the open vessel and a grip, though it's in the latter physical feature of this design that sets it apart from the tea cups that have come before.
There is no hole in this handle for your fingers to curl around, so instead the grip must be pinched with the fingers. However, the angular form of the zigzag projection provides a resting place your palm, so that it too can help support the weight of your beverage. The porcelain Papercup by Laurent Corio might seem peculiar at first, but no doubt an avid tea drinker will become accustomed to grasping it quite quickly.
