The primary objectives were to design a coffee cup that offers leakproof functionality, distinctive aesthetics, and ease of use, all the while infusing the Aromacup with subtle cues from the Aromabox. The form and sealing mechanism has been refined through extensive iterative prototyping and as a result, the final product serves its fundamental purpose as a travel coffee mug, safely holding hot liquids, whilst staying true to Earthmade's sustainability principles.
The Aromacup offers a simple twist-to-open valve and a thin, cup-like rim, deviating from the typical travel mug drinking experience. Its lid, equipped with removable silicone gaskets and a keyhole locking mechanism, guarantees leakproof functionality. Moreover, it's designed for easy disassembly, facilitating thorough cleaning of every part. The cup's soft form contrasted with a striking ribbed texture ensures a comfortable and safe grip whilst on-the-go.
Colour, Material, Finish
In contrast to the Aromabox's colour palette, the Aromacup range introduces five vibrant unisex pastel tones, offering a refreshing departure from standard travel cup options on the market. The cups are sustainably coloured during the injection moulding process using food-safe colouring and can be conveniently washed in a dishwasher, handling temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius.
