A blog about style, design and the search for all things cool

Well tip me over and pour me out!

Sorapot Teapot

No, this is not Nasa’s latest invention or the concept for the next building in NYC. This, my friends, is a teapot. No, this is THE teapot! If ever there was a teapot to be excited about, this is it! Man I’ve never craved tea quite this much.

Designed by architect Joey Roth, who describes his inspiration as follows:

“I’ve always been entranced by small, beautiful things that are so detailed, they seem like miniature worlds, yet so ordinary they’re often left unnoticed. I designed Sorapot to emphasize one of my favorite- the unfurling of tea leaves.”

Yes Joey, so true. I too have always thought that there just wasn’t enough emphasis on tea leaf unfurling.

OK, so practical daily teapot this is not. Sure is perty though.  You can see how it works here.

Mr. Roth is only planning on making 300 of them and you can pre-order yours for $50 today! The rest of the $129 is payed upon shipment. I’ve already pre-ordered mine so there are only 299 left – hurry!

    Oh these architects want to design everything. Check out the Alesi tea kettles by Micheal Graves (also a NJ resident). Look at the handles for this tea pot, they’re metal with no isolation between the grip and the heat from the fire. Good luck pouring that hot cup of tea.
