Skim Milk: Cuppo by Ideaco

(7 years ago)
Cuppo is a minimal design created by Osaka-based company Ideaco. Fortunately, I had the pleasure of recently meeting the founder of the company, Ichiro Haba. He founded the company on the basis of providing smart, innovative designs that are both simple and functional. Most of the products designed by Ideaco are common household items that have been re-invented with improved aesthetic and utility.
