Jang Woo-Seok, a South Korean designer, has created a coffee lid prototype, known as the ‘Coffee Lid: Take ‘Kiss’ Out’, that has realistic nose and lips. Each time you take a sip of your coffee, you can imagine yourself kissing someone.
The coffee lid prototype was made for a cafe franchise and starts production this week. The designer said that there was just a mouth on the lid to begin with for the prototype. However, he felt that there was something missing in their initial design concept. Jang realized that touching the nose is a necessary point in order to feel realistic while being smooched. Therefore, he added the nose to the coffee cup lid. Woo-Seok thinks that the lids will make the coffee drinker stand out among other coffee lovers.
What do you think about this design? Would you want to drink from plastic lips on top of a coffee cup?
