This landscape in a cup is drawn with the variation in thickness of its walls.

Details: Designed by Jin-woog Koo of the Nothing Design Group and Bo-hyung Kim of Bo&Bong Ceramic Art Studio, the landscape illustration on the Lighting Cup is derived from Soomook-sansuhwa, a traditional Korean landscape painting. Reinterpreted as illuminated ceramic art, the landscape is “drawn” with the variation in thickness of the cup walls.
