Anyone who knows us will know how fascinated we are by the concept of placemaking. But rarely is this more apparent than in the case of the tea set which, in so many cultures across the world, seems to exemplify the common role of architecture and design as enablers for social interaction. 

Wanting to test this, we worked with an international team of ceramicists and jewellers to design a tea set which we felt exemplified this enabler status. The complete prototype is in use, and we hope to release a limited-edition collection in the future.
