this is one stunning measuring cup.
designed by josh owen for kikkerland, this aluminum jigger has different measuring pours on each side and was borne from the challenge of attempting to combine the six most common liquid measures used to mix alcoholic drinks into the smallest possible dispenser.
the form was inspired by traditional box-shaped, Japanese sake cups, from which sake is sipped from the corners.
josh studied at cornell and the rhode island school of design. one look at his playful, freshly original work and it’s no wonder that he’s is recognized as one of the best avant-garde industrial designers in america.
