This kind of minimalist, detailed, insanely creative design makes me wonder, exactly what frame of mind does a person have to be in to even think of something like this? I mean seriously, this is nuts!
What do you think this is a picture of below? What exactly do you think you are looking at? A dirty coffee mug, right? Think again. What appears to be that coffee stain is really an entire landscape drawing! If you look at the larger picture on page 2 here, you will see flowers, birds and even a dancing girl inside that coffee cup!
According to Yukihiro Kancuchi, “The stain’s image is a representation of the product’s feelings and memories as the product ages through use.” Yeah, I don’t think I’m smart enough or sophisticated enough to fully appreciate this. Hahaha You can buy one of these coffee cups here.
