A Simple Handle Redesign Keeps This Mug Extra Clean

Illustration for article titled A Simple Handle Redesign Keeps This Mug Extra Clean

If you've ever debated the merits of storing a mug upside-down, or right side up, this brilliant redesign renders that discussion moot. When stored right side up, dust can easily collect inside a mug, and when stored upside down, the rim is touching a potentially dirty surface. But the angled handle of the Bevel Mug solves both of those issues.

It keeps the mug tilted back at a 40 degree angle when stored upside down, preventing dust and other airborne crap from collecting inside, but also keeping the rim elevated and clean. It's also a great way to ensure a mug properly dries inside if it comes out of the dishwasher wet. Now all we need is someone to adopt this clever idea and actually make a mug like this, so the idea doesn't disappear into the ether of forgotten Red Dot innovation. [Red Dot via Yanko Design]

How the h*ll can dust 'easily' collect inside an upside down mug? And how would it be harder for dust to get up inside it if it's exposed? Sounds like very backwards thinking to me... ;)
