DRINK LINK TEA SET
Eindhoven-based designer Joon Lee looks to old artefacts when designing tableware that engages people to converse at the table. The “Drink Link” tea set consists of a teapot connected to its cups, directly linking every person to each other.Synthetic rope covering the porcelain was hardened through a heating process while the linkages to the cups remained flexible.“By mimicking an historical artefact through using a different methodology and material, I created my own interpretation of the traditional Delft blue porcelain,” says Joon Lee.
So interesting idea,and reminiscent of a string telephone. In addition the combination of the materials (porcelain and strings) is unique and eye caching.
