  • The making of Chashkus cups

    Overview• Process

    Drawing first sketches. Trying several concepts and handle designs.

    chashkus process 00

    Creating quick 3D models and styrofoam mock-ups.

    chashkus process 01

    Searching for the graphic solution of the cups and handles.

    chashkus process 02

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

    chashkus process 03

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

    chashkus process 04

    Continuing the search for the graphic solution.

    chashkus process 06

    Creating styrofoam mock-ups.

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

    chashkus process 07

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

    chashkus process 08

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