Bevel Cup, a clean-storing coffee mug...

Sometimes you don't notice a problem until a design comes along to fix it - and darned if coffee mugs don't fit the bill.  Normal  mugs can be stored sitting right side up, in which case dust and debris can fall in; or they can be stored upside down, which prevents proper drying if they're wet and gets the rim dirty regardless.  The Bevel Cup from designers Gao Fenglin & Zhou Buyi finds a third way, with the cup resting on the flat 40-degree angle of its handle.  Moisture drains, dust falls off, and the rim is held off the resting surface.  Ergonomics may not be the best here, but if you tend toward germophobia this may be the mug for you!
