Inspired by traditional Chinese Hakka houses, Hakka is a tea set that emphasises sharing.
The form of the Hakka tea set was inspired by the traditional housing structures of Chinas Hakka people. These buildings were large communal living structures that were often round in shape. They were designed for defensive purposes. Multiple families lived within them, sharing resources and helping each other. Sharing tea is a common Chinese practice, and the Hakka tea set emphasises the notion of sharing. Four stacked cups are accommodated in the central void of the doughnut-shaped teapot.
