A Cup of Coffee



Design a spining-top to learn the skill of lathe. I started thinking about what the motion looks like when people play spinning-tops.

Concept development

Model Making Process

Final Work

Inspired by stirring coffee, I found out that this motion is like playing a spinning top. Thus, I wanted to make a spinning top to capture this motion.


The concept of the spinning top is a cup. When people spin it, it is like they are stirring a cup of coffee.
