  • The making of Chashkus cups

    Overview• Process

    Drawing first sketches. Trying several concepts and handle designs.

    Creating quick 3D models and styrofoam mock-ups.

    Searching for the graphic solution of the cups and handles.

    Testing the ergonomics of handles using mock-ups with real mass.

    Searching for the shape of handles and edges of the cups.

    Continuing the search for the graphic solution.

    Creating styrofoam mock-ups.

    Looking at iterations of the models and printing first prototypes on a 3D printer.

    The cup has to be stable on the saucer, exploring shapes.

    We need a full set of cups and saucers. Examining cross-sections of each pair.


    Preparing prototypes.

    Creating a set.

    Choosing the shape of the grooves at the bottom of the cups.

    Going with the fourth design.

    Adding the logo.

    Preparing blueprints.
