The navel is the scar that reminds us our whole life where we come. There are many conceptions, customs, fashions, and ideas associated with the human navel in the human social context, sometimes considered a taboo, an erotic visual stimulus, a part of our body which can be as sexy as so unpleasant.

OMBLIGO (Spanish for navel) is a tumbler that mimics this mark in our body. With a very pure geometry, which exposes a sexy belly button which the user can touch. Thus creating a more intimate and fun relationship with the product.
