Radiator Mug by Stephen Reed

If you've ever burned your hands on a mug of hot steaming tea, this mug's for you. Stephen Reed (also the designer of the Wordplay Installation with scrabble pillows) made this radiator mug which cleverly incorporates fins so that you can pick it up without a handle. Even with hottest coffee in it. More information on its cool design after the jump.

Reed's clever radiator mug uses the same design principles as the heat sink in your car's engine or your computer. The fins keep your hand far enough away from the cup to keep them from being burned. Sure, that's what a handle is for as well, but this design is clever and elegant, and we like how it combines modern industrial design with simple white porcelain.
