Designer: Jian Zhang
Design Type: Concept

A drop of ink lands on the rice paper, mounting and retaining the moment when the ink droplet is rendering, making it a coaster. The ink colors make five distinctions, corresponding to the five ratios of milk and coffee. The “Five Tints of Ink Color ” in traditional Chinese painting correspond to the concentration of coffee. Customers can choose the corresponding coffee by choosing coasters. The most interesting thing is that when the customer picks up the coffee in his hand and glances down at the coaster, there will be a feeling that the ink on the coaster is rendered by the coffee dripping in the hand, making the process of drinking coffee is full of poetry.
