TIAN YUAN DI FANG / Tea-set

TIAN YUAN DI FANG
TIAN YUAN DI FANG

In order to experience the Hakka architectural culture, we used the traditional architecture element to combine with the tea set.
"Semicircular sky cap on flat ground" is that the cube shape transform into cylinder, it conveys Hakka's traditional construction- evolutionary process of the “Fujian Tulou”.
In operation, we use two fingers to hold the edge of teapot, and then use the index finger to press the lid and tilt down to pour tea. When replace the tea, just press the lid handle to open.

By changing the way of using, we break through the traditional way of pouring tea.
