Caffeine is considered to be the most popular, largely unregulated drug in the world. Caffeine is consumed in coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, many soft drinks and some drugs. Natural sources of caffeine include coffee beans, tea leaves, kola nuts, guarana berries and cacao pods. Like every drug, caffeine affects the nervous system in multiple ways, some of which are desirable, but others of which are unwanted.


The design of these cups represent the contradiction in these effects, on the one hand it’s nervous stance, on the other hand the clean tranquil aesthetics.
