Design by Tassilo Von Grolman, 1983.
No teapot has ever created an uproar equal to that made by the introduction of the mono-Classic in 1983. Tea aficionados and design enthusiasts alike cheered the triumphant synthesis of form and function. The mono Teapot combines the advantages of established steeping methods while at the same time encouraging the full development of the leaves' flavor. The design that features a sieve almost the same size as the teapot itself was a stroke of genius - the tea leaves now have room to expand and fully release their aroma. The use of non-porous materials further assures the purity of the brew: the sieve is made of stainless steel mesh, and the pot is heat resistant Duran glass. Intelligent and deliberate details further enhance the pleasure. The absolute geometry of the glass bowl ensures that the last vestige of tea containing the dregs remains in the pot. The mono-Classic Teapot is perfection, and justifies its place in the annals of design.
Material(s): High grade 18/8 stainless steel and heat resistant borosilicate glass
