Rubik’s Cube Mug and Rubik’s Cube Coasters


From being the must-have puzzler game of the 1980s, the Rubik's Cube more of an iconic design, lending its shape and colours to all manner of modern-day items. The Rubik's Cube Mug and Rubik's Cube Coasters are the most recent.

Both are on pre-order now, with the mug following the 'Cube' shape as closely as possible, but throwing in a 'special curved lip' so it's actually easy to drink out of. The coasters also ape the cube, stacking on top of each other to create a cube when not in use.

If you want one of either, the mug is £8.99, while the coasters are £12.99. See a shot of the coaster over the page.

The Cube Fontaine by Claire Fontaine


Paris-based Claire Fontaine is a contemporary artist whose work intentionally looks like someone else's or indeed something else. I think we all know where The Cube Fontaine takes its inspiration.

Available at Colette, this is obviously a Rubiks Cube, but with a hip artistic twist. That being the colour, with the six colourful side replaced by 'views of the surface of the sea', which is said to mix 'the solid of the cube and the liquid of water while discreetly evoking ecological disasters that surround us'.

If that's a bit deep for you, let's just say an 80s icon has now been thrown into the contemporary world of art and available to you for 32 Euros online.
