Formal Dept. is the design studio of illustrator Kate Pugsley and industrial designer Charlie McArthur. Their product collaborations focus on creative living, functional tools for creators, and elevated everyday housewares. Formal Dept. began with a series of US-produced bags and is expanding into ceramics, housewares, and beyond.
Float Mug is their first ceramic product. They believe that life is better with things that last; in that spirit, they worked with a highly-regarded porcelain ceramic manufacturer in Thailand to build their custom design to the highest possible quality standards.
