Mono-Filio Round Frame Teapot
Note: This product is no longer available.
The mono-filio teapot is a variation of the mono-classic pot, with a vertical stainless steel frame in which the glass bowl is suspended. The design house mono has now developed a process that allows the frame to be made of one single piece, thus eliminating all soldering spots. Just like the award-winning original, it makes the preparation of tea a spectacle to behold - through a background of glass, metal and light, tea leaves reveal their aroma in suspended animation. This is reminiscent of the classic Japanese tea ceremony that is marked by simplicity and serenity. "Less is more", said Sen Rikyu, the 16th century Grand Master of the tea ceremony. Graceful and restrained in its appearance the mono-filio teapot is the centerpiece of a contemporary, Western version of the tea ceremony. It features high grade 18/8 stainless steel and heat resistant borosilicate glass.
