Designer Comment : 

Even though numbers can be enjoyed as elements of various designs, they are usually used on flat surfaces. With the NUMBER CUP, I attempt to invoke the 3rd dimension in numbers by giving them the ability to be picked up and held in your hand. In doing so I aim for the fun in numbers to be brought to life and enjoyed in ways they typically aren't.
