Bubble

A tea set that will keep you on your toes.

Bubble is an outcome from a personal project to explore ceramic as a material. It is also the result of 'breaking the bubble' within the tea culture.

This tea set is an exploration on how design can change the behavioural and functional skills of users within the comfort zone that they have been accustomed to; in this case, existing teapots and mugs.

The design consists of unstabled bottoms that needs to be placed into its allocated coasters, which are the platforms to keep it standing. Making users feel a sense of discomfort from additional responsibility that they need to be conscious of.
