Korea is an amazing country with incredibly friendly people. There are a lot of amazing things that come out of Korea – they have the fastest internet connection in the world, the largest IKEA in the world and of course they brought us ‘Gangnam Style’! Takeaway coffee cups with lips, however, in my opinion, is definitely one of their more weird efforts – and not their best.
Yep – they’ve put lips on the tops of the lids so that when want a drink, you find yourself pashing a piece of plastic.
I’m a big believer in simplicity and minimalism. For me, a coffee cup lid serves a purpose and most times is elegantly simple. Provided it functions well and looks great – I’m not looking for too much more from my paper cup lids.
It’s definitely quirky but I’d rather let the cup design do the ‘talking’.
For those that are now intrigued by what they could make a cup lid in to for their next promotion, unfortunately the minimum quantity orders are in the hundreds of thousands. We thought we better check that out for all those creative types out there!
What do you think? Could you see yourself locking lips with these lids?
