Tea Light is a warmer for teapot, adopting the design theory of 2D into 3D.
The overall shape is formed by a stretched hexahedron cutting into two halves which fit each other with a continuous curve. These two halves, as the positive and negative part, are cut precisely to leave a same gap in the middle ensures the air circulation and stabilizes the air flow. A hexagon is formed by circular cutting on top for a balanced aesthetic appreciation.
This product encourages people to enjoy outdoor activities and fresh air instead of staying inside, which is more than just a simple teapot warmer, but a reminder of a beautiful outdoor life.
