The Other Architecture

LOA_CUP_SAUCERPuerto Rican coffee has won many accolades and what better way to consume your daily dose of caffeine then in the award winning LOA Cup and Saucer design by Josué Rivera Gandia.

In his view, the opportunity to design a cup provides the possibility to inspire individuals in the intimacy of their own home. Home, work and leisure are the three principal moments which are transformed by the act of drinking coffee and are expressed in the triangular design. The Loa cup and saucer are made of stoneware ceramic, we especially love how the handle is seamlessly integrated into the design. Available in black and white here

LOA is an acronym for“ La Otra Arquitectura”(the other architecture) and its main purpose is to promote and publicize  quality design in Puerto Rico. The LOA Coffee Cup and Saucer design received a Bronze A’ Design Award in Italy in the Bakeware, Tableware, Drinkware and Cookware Design Category, in 2013.
