Among the various features of Tour 2005, Musa presented already a new project at ExperimentaDesign2005. The HoleMug is an original mug produced and designed by Musa in partnership with product designers Joao Seco and Jorge Trindade, the distinguishing feature is that although it has no handle you can still hold it and use it for hot liquids without burning yourself.
The concept of the mug revolves around the “hole”, hence “HoleMug”.
