The Figgjo Oslo cups was developed by Kristin Hærnes Ihlen together with Tim Wendelboe in order to enhance the coffee drinking experience.  These products allow you to tailor the experience of the coffee’s aroma and flavour. Figgjo won the Red Dot Design Award in 2016 with this cup series.

Tim's Notes

Established in 1941, Figgjo is the sole remaining porcelain manufacturer in the Nordics and they pride themselves in making beautiful, functional, durable porcelain. Together, we have developed the Oslo cup series with the help of designer Kristin Hærnes Ihlen from Physical Design and Figgjo. There are three different cups in the series - Tulip, Split and Open - all made to enhance the drinking experience.

  • "Tulipan" (Tulip) is designed for coffees with lower acidity like typical Bourbons from El Salvador, Brazil or Indian coffees. The cone shaped cup enhances more earthy aromas and gives you an impression that the coffee is very sweet as the liquid enters the mouth in a narrow stream and hits the middle of the tongue.

  • "Splitt" (Split) is designed for coffees with intense fruity and floral aromas and bright acidity. Typically we use these cups for our Kenyan and Ethiopian coffees. The unique design enhances the aromatics when you smell the coffee in the cup and the wide shape makes the liquid enter your mouth with a wider spread so that you perceive acidity more clearly.

  • "Åpen" (Open) is more of an all-round cup. The classic U-shape is a forgiving shape when it comes to taste balance yet it has the ability to intensify aromas when you smell the coffees. We typically use these cups for coffees that have fruity characters and medium intense acidity. The fun part is that you can play around with the different shapes with different coffees and change your guests perception of how the coffees taste like.
