Korean Designer Creates a Novel Coffee Cup Lid With Full Lips That Are All Puckered Up for a Kiss

Kiss 5

Korean industrial designer Jang WooSeok has created “Kiss When Coffee“, a wonderfully novel disposable coffee cup lid that features a protruding nose and big full lips that are all puckered up for a big kiss. The designer said that he “loves coffee and kisses” and wanted to combine the two.

I love both coffee and kisses. I always have coffee a day, but not a kiss. So I began to sketch the idea at the cafe. Funny, I imagined people have a pure joy when walking around kiss lid in hand. Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take ‘Kiss’ Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking. This is a disposable cup& lid for B2B (Cafe franchise) product. Polystylene Material. And It will produce first this week. There is only mouth on the lid to start with prototype. However I felt like there was something missing in our early design concept. I realized that touch the noses is essential point in order to feel realistically while i kissed. So I add the nose and face muscle to the lid. Finally, It has the lineaments of that of a Greek statue as well as a friendly face.
