All that you need to keep your tabletop protected from scalding saucepans is a pad made from insulating material; however, these Sketch Coasters and Trivets demonstrate that there is a major opportunity here for creativity. Peleg Design came up with a collection of four mug mats and three hot pots that have been done up to represent the appearances of the very objects that they hold.

Teacups, saucers, mugs and coffee cups seem to have been made from silicone to resemble 2D doodles complete with details like shading and texture and the inclusion of teaspoons and sugar cubes. The Sketch Coasters look like frying pans and pots with illusory accents to suggest shiny metal and simmering contents. The sets are practical and decorative and sure to delight every person at the dinner table.
