Bristol, UK, 15th Dec 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, TOPL is a reusable coffee cup developed for toplcup.com by UK product designers Flynn Product Design, sustainable design featuring a classic form and a better, safer and more convenient on-the-go coffee drinking experience.
The TOPL Coffee Cup has a patent pending rotational locking mechanism in custom food grade silicone, for practical and leak-proof transportation. TOPL fully integrates anti-spill technology. When the TOPL cup is open, the patented bi-stable valve lid, using 3 magnets and 7 seals – automatically snaps shut if the cup is tipped over, keeping people as well as your Macbook safe.
The 360° lip allows you to enjoy your favourite roast with full aroma and a comfortable sensory drinking experience from any angle without sipping through a slot or worries over spills while also reducing the risk of scalding. In 8oz and 12 oz sizes, drink temperature is retained thanks to the twin wall vacuum insulated construction in stain, odour and scratch-resistant stainless steel, which remains cool to the touch.
Based on a ‘single-use’ cup form, the minimalist TOPL design reflects the strong lifestyle brand identity of reusable products with enhanced sustainability. Since its launch last year, the TOPL design has successfully gained commercial traction and critical acclaim.

Chris Flynn, Founder and MD, Flynn Product Design:
“More than the sum of its parts, TOPL proves that things can always be better – even the humble cup. The experience has reinforced both our team’s design processes and the company’s HUMAN design philosophy that sets us apart. Our vision is to make things the best they can be to connect humans and objects on a fundamental level – simple yet complex, functional yet emotional. I think we have achieved that with TOPL”
