‘Stone’ encompasses stackable tea and coffee sets with round stone-like lids. The idea behind ‘Stone’ was to create a tableware collection where every element could be stacked on top of one another. The lids on the iron kettle and Chinese teapot are made of hollow silicone and are perforated on one side to double as tea strainers. The use of silicone means the lids have very low thermal conductivity while the tea cups are made from urethane foam to prevent unwanted clatter. The lid from the glass water jug also can also be used for cold brewing tea. Additionally, the long, square and round plates feature sunken expressions for small stone shaped containers to function as sauce dipping pots.
