Beautiful and disturbing cup by Lily X. Su:

“Why is it that we find the cup so unappetizing? Could it have originated from survival tactics where we relate our proximity to another’s teeth as a threat of life, a reminder of predator and prey, poison and contamination?
Is this object then successful in its design to prevent gluttonous behavior should food and drink only be offered in the cup?”

In Case Vase, designed by Sara Ebert:

“The perforated ornamentation on the In Case Vase provides a secondary and potentially life-saving purpose. Were an intruder to attack, the vase can be smashed and turned against the aggressor. The pattern creates optimal shards to aid in your protection.”
