TEA MATTER

MELODIC TEA-STRAINER

design Alan Chan

This tea strainer is part of a new project of communication, containing a number of different objects. The designer Alan Chan has proposed an attractive and articulated product but also adding some characters defining the landscape and the cultural atmosfere in which the products are placed. <<The tea strainer comes in the form of a bird in a birdcage. It was inspired by the social tradition, deeply rooted in Chinese history, with bird-fanciers taking their pet birds in exquisite birdcage to tea as a past-time. The whole object, highly crafted, is an art display in itself.>> (Alan Chan)
