I’m too sad to separate

Above: The original “I’m too sad to separate” cup, created by Netherlands-based Joon&Jung Design. I recently stumbled across their “New I’m too sad to Separate” series, below, and had an immediate gut reaction to these beautiful pieces.

My obsession over cups is no secret. They’re so familiar, constant and intimate, and can be so beautiful.

There’s something weirdly painful about these designs – awkward, compromised utility – the solid cups become liquid, living objects.
