MOTIVATION FROM THE JYRU
Kupilka cups have been the benchmark for years regarding durability and sustainable materials. Their NFC-material is a composite of wood based cellulose and thermoplastic making it extremely tough and easy to care for (dishwasher safe). The Kupilka 37 is the newest addition to the line and has just the right size to use it as a mug and as a bowl. The jury was also impressed by the simplicity and function of the design. »It’s a hugging mug«, states one jury member while holding the cup.
