No Words Needed

I CAME ACROSS THE PHENOMENON OF THE ‘COFFEE DRINKING’ FUNCTIONING AS A ADHESIVE TO MAKE A MORE INTIMATE AND GENUINE ATMOSPHERE BETWEEN TWO OR MORE PEOPLE. I STARTED TO CREATE DEVICES OR TOOLS TO EMPHASIZE THIS ACTION MORE.

 

CAN WE CONCUR THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES WITH THIS PLAYFULL COFFEE DRINKING? THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES OF THE ‘COFFEE DRINKING’ ARE FUN TO DISCOVER TOGETHER. THIS TOOL TAKES TIME TO PUT TOGETHER. IT CREATES A NECESSITY TO FIGURE IT OUT BUT NOT JUST BY YOURSELF BUT TOGETHER. IT IS A SMALL PUZZLE TO BUY TIME TO ACTUALLY CONNECT WITH THE PERSON AND TO NOT USE WORDS ALL THE TIME.
