The design process for this project started with different approaches to conceptualize a product. As a group, we explored which were the most representative elements for the perfect gift. Three of the insights that caught my attention were: a) It can be used daily, like a ritual b) It can be shared c) It can be somehow geek or specialized. Working along those lines, the tea ceremony came to my mind, how this moment reveals a process and a series of steps, and above all, time. Tea Time.
I tried to avoid making a purely figurative product. I wanted to design something beautiful, delicate, with noble materials, practical and with a clear function.
With Tea Time, your tea will never get bitter, because it shows you the time to remove the tea bag or infuser.
