Floating Mug

Whatever floats your mug.

Admit it, whether it’s for Christmas or your birthday, receiving mugs as gifts are the worst. You probably already have a truckload of them collecting dust in your kitchen cabinet. The Floating Mug, however, is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s a porcelain cup that’s hanging on its handle, seemingly giving off the silhouette that it’s suspended in the air. The functional purpose behind this design is to have a platform that can catch the moisture that rolls down from the cup, similar to a coaster. Now, you can protect your table surfaces from stains and droplets while impressing your house guests.

It’s a mug with a built-in coaster

The Floating Mug was invented by entrepreneur Tigere Chiriga after he noticed his regular old mug left ring stains on his furniture. He put the concept up on Kickstarter, raising more than double his initial funding target of $15,000, and later brought it to reality TV show Shark Tank, where it became even more popular.

It’s a big hassle carrying a coaster around whenever you want to take your cup of coffee or tea around the house with you. Sure, coasters are handy, but chances are you’ll forget to bring one with you when you’re excited about your hot drink. With this white ceramic mug, however, you don’t ever have to worry about leaving droplets or mysterious coffee rings on surfaces as it features a built-in coaster.

You’re bound to spark a conversation while keeping your furniture in pristine condition.

Awesome product features

  • Elegant silhouette: If you showed the Floating Coffee Mug to your friends, they would probably think it’s a work of art rather than something you can easily buy. Taking inspiration from a banana-hook stand, it flaunts an incredibly unique design that makes the cup look like it’s floating above ground.
  • Simple but functional design: This porcelain cup not only looks amazing, but it’s also functional. Yes, you can drink from it the same way you do any other mug. It can hold about 8oz of liquid, making it perfect for your morning coffee or your afternoon tea.
  • Spacious ergonomic handle: You don’t have to worry about spilling your drinks all over yourself as the mug is designed with modern lines and tapered walls, allowing it to be comfortable to hold and easy to handle.

Who will appreciate this as a gift

There’s finally a mug that’s not boring. One that people might actually use or even wish for.

Yup, we’re talking about the work of genius that is the Floating Mug. It’s perfect for those who love drinking hot coffee or tea, saving them from needing a coaster to protect tabletops. It could also be suitable for those who just moved into a new place or renovated their spaces as it makes a good household accent to spruce up their decor. High time people stopped giving out and using those ugly customized coffee mugs

Because you need to know

Is it safe to use in the microwave?

Yes, the Floating Coffee Mug is made of porcelain, which can take very high temperatures, so it can be heated inside a microwave.

It looks unstable, does it easily tip over?

It looks deceptively fragile and easy to topple over, but it’s actually very stable. The handle itself feels sturdy and firmly stuck on the cup itself, meaning you won’t spill your drinks. Unless, of course, you drop the mug on the floor.
