Design of the Week: Mobius Sake Cup

This week’s selected design is Ovidiu Opresco’s Mobius Sake Cup. 
How simple is a Sake cup? What could transform such a straightforward object into the unusual? 
Ovidiu Opresco’s idea was to blend the concept of a an endless Mobius strip with the cup to create a very unusual piece. The cup is functional – and even includes a mobius-filling port on the top, separate from the drinkable vent. Be careful: while the Mobius portion may be endless, the capacity of the cup is not! 
You cannot download and print this model yourself, but it is available for purchase on Shapeways. We priced out a beautiful Avocado Green Ceramic version at €48.25, or around USD$62.
