Zaha Hadid Tea Set
Designed inspired by Arumjigi Collection
2009

In addition to being a unique piece of avant-garde design, the Tea Service references ancient traditions of the Korean lifestyle within the Seoul Collection.

Zaha Hadid Architects captured the true essence of the traditional Korean tea service within the fluid forms, and surfaces consisting of a carbon fiber outer shell and delicate ceramic interior. The horizontal proportions of the pot and its low centre of gravity as well as the cups are Asian in form and spirit.

As noted by Zaha Hadid, the Tea Set is an example that shows the concept of integrated flowing forms, in which there is a relationship between the internal cups and the external encasement. The pot and cups are ergonomically shaped in relation to the hand and body, with careful consideration given to the way liquid is contained and released from the vessels.
