Stackable Tea Set Revives Tea Drinking Ritual
A Parsons thesis project provides a minimalist, contemporary update to a product with an ancient legacy.
FIN is a tea cup and saucer set designed by Parsons student Hsin Lin for her thesis project at Parsons The New School For Design. The young designer lamented the loss of ceremony behind the act of tea drinking and aimed to modernize that concept with this sleek stackable set. With contemporary tea sets, the cups and saucers are traditionally stacked separately, eventually eliminating the need for the saucer altogether, but FIN joins the two elements to ensure that consumers make use of both pieces.
