Sorvo by David Weeks Studio for Othr

How does one begin to reimagine such an age-old form as a cup? In Sorvo, the impossible is achieved. By digitally modifying the cup’s wall thickness, the designer has created a subtle trompe l'oeil: the perfectly centered surface of the espresso sits within a seemingly asymmetrical porcelain frame.
The interior volume is offset from the outside form; though the cup sits at an angle, the surface of the espresso remains level when sipped.
