GREY CLOUDS AND A BIT OF SUN Cup and Saucer
by Erin Turkoglu
Inspired by the warm orange glow of the sun on a cloudy day, the porcelain cup creates a cloudy landscape with a hint of hidden color that is achieved through diffuse reflection. The coffee cups convey a reflection of Nordic skies.
This Product Plants A Tree
As part of ÅBEN's mission to make a more positive contribution to the environment, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every product sold. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
We need more trees. Find out more on onetreeplanted.org
