The coffee cup-a-day project

Each of the thirty diminutive espresso cups in Cuni’s amusing array was conceived, designed, modeled and fabricated within a 24-hour period. They’re printed in food-safe, heat-resistant and recyclable glazed ceramics by Shapeways, a partner in the venture, but they aren’t inexpensive. Prices range from US$36 to $81 for the roughly 45 mm (1.7 inch) diameter cups made available for purchase."The cups are designed as a creative exercise and as a proof of concept for digital fabrication, in order to achieve something unthinkable some time ago: Create a product from the idea to the consumer in less than 24 hours,"
