A Cup of Coffee Exhibition

Chiang Mai Design week  - 2018



The objective of this exhibition is to examine the connection of human interaction with daily used products which, in this case, is a cup of coffee. We are looking through the connection based on human perception and interpretation towards a cup of coffee which reflect different forms of human behavior.


Coffee cups are not used just for containing or drinking but more than hundreds of them have been chosen to be examined, whether they are universal designed cup or unique local designed cup. There are many of them that we are familiar with, many that we use, many that we may have seen but never use, and many that weren’t purposely designed to be coffee cups but we use them anyway. You will find ‘A Cup of Coffee’ from 15 creators whose designs didn’t focus on its color or its shape but rather representing the creators’ different ideas towards their cup of coffee. Let’s try to understand and explore the connection of ‘A Cup of Coffee’. We hope that you might find some values hidden in these daily used products. ​ ​ ​
