In my interview with Olaf Stevens I found interest in a point he made of his hobby of sailing. He described his hobby and passion as a way to reflect, disconnect and meditate. He could go out and be rejuvenated by the nature, the wind in the sails and the sound and smell of the ocean. Everything starts to taste and feel better; the coffee, food and his favourite clothes.
Tanckaert was designed as a substitute for current boating mugs which are made from plastic and metal and which can taint this experience of truly enjoying a warm drink.
The mug is based on traditional forms which bear a wide base in which the content can stabilize the cup while staying further away from the opening.
