Books have been written on the colour of tea – so why hide it? The Middle East has a long tradition of using glass vessels for tea; Lobmeyr produced numerous tea and punch mugs in the 19th century. We already knew that our thin, lead-free crystal could bear mechanical strain. KIM+HEEP proved in impressive tests that it is also extremely resistant to changes in temperature.
The design team developed a well-balanced and functional shape that blends harmoniously into Josef Hoffmann’s “Patrician” series. A wonderful set to refine the moment of a joyful sip!
In 2013 the series was supplemented with an Espresso cup. Inspired by oriental coffee cups with metal saucers, our chandelier workshop has created a saucer of heavy gilt brass.
