About the founder
Jon McLaughlin takes one last sip, then casually flings his MYMUG over the side of a balcony. “I like to see the look on people’s faces when I throw it,” he bemuses with a grin. “Total shock.”
As an industrial designer, Jon spent his life surprising old, tired buildings with new and lively ideas, until one day he poured himself a disappointing mug of soup. The handle shape was awkward, the heat-loss irksome, and the fragile object was one lid-less drop away from becoming a pile of sloppy shards. Close to 6,000 years after the common mug’s invention, Jon decided it was time to design something better.
Today, twenty prototypes and several balconies later, Jon’s MYMUG bounces twice then rests unscathed on the hard ground below. He smiles.
“All we ever need are elegant ideas,” he says. And, he’s right.
