These coffee lids that look like human faces allow you to ‘kiss’ your morning coffee

Are these cool, creepy, or a little bit of both?

Morning cup of joe, meet morning cup named Joe.These bizarre coffee cup lids are the new thing in Korea, and they look just like human faces. Call them creepy all you want, but these lids with noses and mouths will definitely give you a pick-me-up in the morning.

Designed by South Korean designer Jang Woo-Seok, the lids are a fun and simple way to guarantee that you receive a “kiss” in the morning. According to the designer, he came up with the idea because he likes both kisses and coffee in the a.m., and the cup allows you to experience both at the same time.


The final design has “the lineaments of that of a Greek statue as well as a friendly face.” However, the cup itself is made from polystyrene. The quirky coffee cup design was published on Behance (a site that showcases digital design ideas), and will begin distribution in Korea this week.
