notNeutral brings together performance and design to create innovative products for coffee culture and design enthusiasts.
As with all the products we feature, we consider beauty and functionality because that's the stuff we get excited about. The Lino collection of coffee cups has an ergonomic handle large enough to comfortably grasp, and a wide mouth for the drinker to experience the aroma of the coffee as they sipped.
notNeutral was founded in 2001 by the award-winning multidisciplinary design firm RIOS. Based in Los Angeles, their design approach is centered on customers and the industry they serve. They consider how to make ordinary objects easier to use, more beautiful, and more effortlessly integrated into people’s daily lives.
notNeutral entered the world of specialty coffee after collaborating with world-champion baristas to design the perfect cups for an increasingly sophisticated craft. Driven by the success of their iconic Lino collection, they've made it their mission to continue creating extraordinary products for specialty coffee and hospitality industries, informed by research, testing, and rigorous design.
