The science behind
the Curvd mug
The precise engineering, design decisions, and
testing behind Curvd mug's design.
The problem about coffee mugs are that they don't fit all hands- because all hands are not the same. Some hands are small, some are large, some are wide, some are narrow, some are weaker, some are stronger, some have three fingers, and some have none. We were set out to create a human friendly mug that can be held by all hands.
Inclusive - multiple grips.
Fits commercial & domestic dishwashers
We sketched 95 ideas
3D printed 37 designs
Prototyped 12 mugs
Produced 1 design
We carefully studied all the variety of hand types to create one perfect design that accommodates them all.
