In many countries, tea time is more than just a mundane everyday activity that one indulges in between lunch and dinner. In fact, it is nothing less than an experience in itself. No wonder the Japanese regard their ‘tea ceremonies’ with so much reverence. You too can make yours an extraordinary one thanks to an extremely novel Silver Tea & Coffee Tower Set. Designed by Zaha Hadid, this one sells under brand name Alessi. And from what it looks like, the talented designer has very successfully translated her passion into this amazing creation.
The tower set is made up of four elements – a teapot, a coffeepot, a milk jug and a sugar bowl. All of these fit in pretty well together to form a sculptural three-dimensional silhouette, which, in turn, sits pretty in a tray that helps the user walk through various configurations. In other words, the form can change depending on whether it is in use or otherwise.
The teapot stays wide and flat keeping its organic shape intact. On the other hand, the coffee pot rises from the landscape just like a tower does. You can get this very artistic tea companion at a price of $33,500. The collection is limited with only 99 units selling through 20ltd. Hurry!
