Every office coffee bitch needs to get a hold of the Smart Holder system. Heroic juggling and unreliable cardboard trays are not the most efficient ways to carry cups full of hot beverages, and thanks to Jongwoo Choi there seems to be a much better way.

The cross-section of these ingenious sleeves takes advantage of the shape of gears. Each ring has a series of vertical slots which can be slipped into adjacent rings to fuse the two together. A larger cluster of mugs can be connected in such a way, eliminating the risk of losing your grip of one glass. The same apertures that connect the Smart Holder sleeves together allow for handles to be clipped in as well. It would be great to see this product pass its conceptual stage for the benefit of the little guy who does the morning coffee run.
