In Praise of Small Coffee Cups
A must read from Wall Street Journal:
"In Praise of Small Coffee Cups" by Sarah Karnasiewicz
From Sami Ruotsalainen who designed many of the coffee cups for Marimekko: '"Finnish coffee cups have traditionally been very little, so partly I kept my designs small in honor of that history- but I also wanted to remind people they don't always have to drink and run," he said. "A little cup says, 'Sit down, take a moment.'"
