About the Diner Mug, by the designer, Mark Warren
I love a good mug. Specifically, I love a good diner mug. A mass-produced, chunky, chipped lip, coffee-stained mug instantly brings me memories of eating at a Waffle House on a family road trip between Florida and Mississippi, or a bleary-eyed trip to an all night diner during my younger, wilder days. I have a library of mugs I have appropriated from diners, cafeterias, and thrift shops on the shelves of my studio. They are not pretty, but they are built to last and the ones I gravitate towards have a ratio between the handle and the mug is often ergonomically perfect but visually unbalanced. This mug is a love letter to these quotidian, working class heroes of the beverage world.
I originally designed these mugs several years ago as part of the opening for Danny Meyer’s coffee shop concept Daily Provisions. I count it a real achievement in my design career to have designed a mug for an actual New York coffee shop, just like the places featured endlessly on TV and movies as part of the fabric of the daily lives there. We had so many people reach out to us after using one of these mugs at Daily Provisions that we knew we had to have it available on our website.

The perfect mug

This mug fits perfectly in your hand, and holds just enough coffee that it is still warm when you get to the last drink.

Finally got my Diner Mug!

After falling in love with it at Daily Provisions in November 2017, I'm so happy to have finally gotten a Diner Mug of my own. It's just as lovely as the ones at Daily Provisions---a warm dark periwinkle (I don't think it's lapis as it's called) that complements the browns of a coffee or tea, with lines that fit around a smaller paw like mine (taller and narrower (keeps your drink warmer longer) than some of the other mugs that HAAND makes). Perhaps HAAND could make some dishes and bowls to match the Diner Mug? A breakfast set, say....
