The Chilean design studio bravo! combines local Legna wood, copper, and bronze to create a line of elegant handcrafted accessories, including coat hooks, candlestick holders, and containers. In addition to their product design work, the Santiago-based studio also designs architectural interiors. I like how a grouping of mushroom-capped coat hooks, made of wood and bronze, transforms a wall into an art installation. All images courtesy bravo!
During last month’s London Design Festival, the folks from Atta Creative displayed these lovely tea bags as part of a collaborative of Korean designers. The T-Point tells you when your water is at the proper temperature for brewing through color changes of the leaf that is produced by thermocolor printing. Just pop a leaf out of the container and hold it above the cup to see if it’s ready. Teapop Travel bags have paper cut-outs of famous icons to create souvenir tea bags. Finally, Tea for Two is an engagement ring shaped handle that would be a perfect favor for bridal showers, engagement parties, or just for the bride and groom to use on their special day.
