Anamorphic Cup (Mother)
Designer: Ross Mcbride, United States
“Anamorphose” is from the Greek ana meaning “back” or “again”, and morphe, meaning “form”. It refers to a distorted image that only appears normal when viewed with or reflected from a special device. Such curiosities first appeared in the 1600s, and became popular throughout Europe in the 18th Century.
The Anamorphic Cup is the first product to employ the centuries old visual play of the anamorphic cylinder. The stainless steel cup has a polished mirror finish. He porcelain saucer is printed with distorted images or words. These graphics can only be viewed correctly though the curved, reflective surface of the cup. The image is indecipherable when the cup and saucer are separate.
