A winner of the 2020 Red Dot Design Award, Knot’s porcelain Frustum teapot brings the age-old custom of Japanese green tea into the contemporary household. Elegantly minimalist in design, it draws from history, with its unusual shape and perfectly arched brass handle inspired by traditional heavy cast-iron nambu kettles made in Tohoku.
In a subtle blush pink, the Frustum pot and its pair of matching cups are lightly glazed for a matte finish at Shinyama Kiln in Gifu, an area renowned for its porcelain artisans. The pot’s inner strainer makes it ideal for any kind of loose leaf tea, whether Japanese, English or herbal. This is a tea set designed to bring back a little beauty and ritual to any tea break.
Knot conceptualizes designs that have stood the test of time with contemporary artistry, often re-imagining classic concepts in surprisingly imaginative ways. Its focus is to present products that may hint at nostalgia, but are completely new and unique in design and function.
