Designed for the individual tea preparation for one person, this space-saving stackable teapot can be filled with only 120 ml of water. The integrated strainer leaves ample space for the tea leaves to unfold, enhancing the development of the tea’s flavour. The thick-walled vessel is cast using a special resin moulding technique. It is as transparent as glass, yet virtually unbreakable. In addition, the material is not heat conductive so that the pot can do without a handle.

Statement by the Jury

Thanks to a stringent minimalist design vocabulary, this teapot convinces as a stylish product solution offering contemporary comfort.
