Kung Fu Tea Set / Tea Set

Kung Fu Tea Set
Kung Fu Tea Set

Five tea sets of different characters are designed based on the unique movements from eastern martial arts.Through interpretation of the symbols, the movements are transformed into characteristics for design, which subvert conventional patterns of tea sets and create a new life style to deliver the messages from the local culture. Between martial arts and tea, the aspect of functions is no longer considered, instead, cultural meanings are explored, which represent a visual enjoyment and a way to cultivate moral character.
