a mug playing with architectural proportions
The Monday Mugs are a series of uniquely shaped stackable porcelain mugs in soft tones. For the shape Siebring & Zoetmulder played with the architectural proportions inspired by the mathematical rules of the ‘Plastisch getal’. These are methods to apply the Golden Ratio in 3D, developed by monk and architect Dom Hans van der Laan. In addition, the geometric shape is inspired by elements from the Memphis group.
During the manufacturing process, the pigments are mixed into the liquid porcelain and poured into the mold, which is then fired and finished. A sophisticated detail of this piece is the elegant contrast between the soft matt finish of the outside and the high gloss finish of the inside of the cup.
