The Magic of Everyday Things

Designers at Nendo were given the unconventional task of transforming a Cup Noodle into something remarkable to be sold as a specialty souvenir for the Nissin Cup Noodle Museum. The aim of the ceramic vessel was to “remind us that the line between the ordinary and the extraordinary is infinitely fine, and help us to rediscover the ‘small incidents’ that are submerged in the most familiar things.”

In this regard, it is similar to Crossfire, developed by Geoffrey Mann, a video and set of ceramics that speculate about the ordinary and intangible characteristic of the spoken word upon the objects around us.
