Inspired by Japanese designs, Giel Dedeurwaerder and Brent Neve from the designer collective Utilise.objects created cups made of solid acacia wood and a cast-iron teapot.
The combination of the warm wood tone and the indestructible cast iron gave the service exactly those durable, functional, and aesthetic characteristics that the duo was looking for. And those same features have been awarded the Henry Van de Velde Awards 2019 in the Habitat category.
The choice of material for the Collage teacups design fell on solid acacia wood. The insulating properties of this wood ensure that the filled cup never gets too hot to hold. The slightly greyed wood is finished with a matt, waterproof, and food-safe varnish. The horizontal seam in the middle of the cups emphasises the straightforward appearance of the design.
