About PO: – Ring Thermo Mug Dougong
The pattern on this elegant porcelain PO: Ring Thermo Mug Dougong is inspired in the China Pavilion in Olympic 2008. The minimalistic aesthetics present in the representation of the 2008 Chinese Pavilion is influenced by the 20th-century Dutch painter and theoretician Piet Mondrian. Along with Theo van Doesburg, Mondrian cofounded the “De Stijl” movement, which revolved primarily around the idea of neoplasticism, a “new plastic art”, which would strife to represent universal beauty. In order to obtain this, Mondrian reduced his selection of colors to the primary colors (blue, yellow and red), his selection of values to the three primary values (black, grey and white), and to the three primary directional arrangements (diagonal, horizontal, and vertical). Influenced by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s ideas of theosophy, much of Mondrian’s later works reflect his interest in searching for spiritual knowledge and reducing aesthetic elements in his works of art to their essential manifestations. Mondrian’s quest to represent a universal and essential beauty later influenced the development of the 1960s American artistic movement, Minimalism. When designing this Small Ring Thermo Mug Dougong designers at PO: decided to focus on creating a product that not only looks great in your home while taking into account your comfort and safety. No more burnt fingers and spilled drinks – this mug has a two-walled structure to protect your hands from hot drinks and a silicone ring to help you to hold it tightly.
