ONKRUID is a product born out of a group
assignment. It is a ceramic teacup inspired by the nettle. The nettle is an herb
that is very emerging (think about textile made from nettle fibers). Yet it is
still seen by many people as a weed. If you are stung by the nettle your skin can
get irritated but if you pick the nettle from the bottom you do not suffer from this
reaction, and this fact, we have included in the concept for our teacup.
Instead of holding the cup by an earpiece, grab the cup from below, just like you
would with the nettle, this way your hand is surrounded by the cup and stays warm
by hot tea.
