Is this post-modernism? Is this non-sense? Is this art? Speedy & Friends egg cups, produced by the German company Casablanca, seem to offer infinite declinations of the same essential subject: half an egg with feet. Classified in different families and sub-families, Speedy's Friends cover more or less all modern human activities and events: sports, hobbies, important moments in life, jobs, ... whatever you can think about, it has probably been represented in a Speedy & Friends Eierbecher. These egg cups are not only all designed with extravagant imagination; they are also hand-painted with precious care. Moreover, Casablanca sells also plenty of irrelevant accessories such as transparent plastic balls to have your Speedy & Friends egg cups floating around your home. We are fans.
