A new ceramic travel mug based on the Taipei 101 allows anyone to carry the world’s tallest green building in the palm of their hand. Taiwanese ceramic brand ACERA has lovingly based their design on the textured façade of the iconic building in the One-O-One mug.
Each mug in the collection is hand-crafted and hand-decorated, with a faux walnut lid. The mugs come in four colors, including mint green, old rose, stone glue, and mocha brown. Looking at the final product, it’s not hard to see why it recently received the prestigious Red Dot Award.
Not only are these mugs a gorgeous homage to the building that inspired them, but by using ceramic instead of plastic, ACERA is creating a more sustainable product than many of the other travel mugs on the market. They’re not just better for the planet, either — by avoiding plastic in the walls or lining of the mug, they’re also safer for their users because they don’t contain toxic chemicals like BPA.
