Read My Lips.
Since the beginning of the 19th century, the Braille system has revolutionized written communication for the visually impaired. First called "night writing", it was originally invented by soldiers in order to communicate silently at night. When it comes to using braille in our everyday lives, many of us remain in the dark, but these elegant cups shed light on this sophisticated communication system while heightening senses as you share drinks with friends.
Designer Liv Andersson looks to her Scandinavian heritage for inspiration, and her preference for a minimal, modern aesthetic comes through in this set of four, creamy porcelain cups. The raised braille lining the lip of each cup spells out one of four lines: "Be Kind," "Breathe Deep," "Love Yourself," and "Make Time" (phrases are also printed on the bottom of each cup). Each meditative phrase takes on a whole new meaning as the message grazes your lips with every sip. Made in China.
