“… but what does it mean to drink ? Do we drink with our skin when the hands are hugging the cup? Are we drinking with our body posture while sipping earl grey in a tearoom? Are the ears drinking as we take each sip of coffee? Does the nose know that it is drinking as it hovers above the caramelised milk froth sitting atop a very large cup of coffee…?”

Book B is delighted to invite Science of the Secondary to Hong Kong for the first time, presenting two installation experiences, ‘Café CUP’ and ‘What’s Your Way’, and a Publisher Talk.

Café CUP is drinking laboratory that invites visitors to be curious about the sensations of drinking from a cup. Participants are free to choose and drink from a collection of 17 cup prototypes, developed in consideration of the findings made through Atelier HOKO’s research publication ‘Science of the Secondary: Cup’. Facilitating various drinking gestures, this installation experience is an attempt to uncover the source of enjoying a beverage beyond the sense of taste.
