Daniel Libeskind’s tea set lives architecture in iconic design
Daniel Libeskind, the Polish-born American architect, is a well-known name in architectural practice and urban design. He is quite popular for his modern creations, which include the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester. During the 2009 Milan Design Week in the Via Manzoni showroom, the celebrated architect presented his first home accessory – a luxury tea set he designed for Sawaya & Moroni. The news is a bit old, but it definitely deserves a mention from us. Libeskind’s glossy tea set is inspired by his inimitable, edgy architectural style. This tea set has been designed in the form of a sculptural object for use at home. The handmade tea set is done in sterling silver and includes a tea pot, coffee pot, creamer, two tea cups, a sugar bowl and tray. These pieces reflect contemporary urban planning and are thought of as a row of detached buildings that always change as one uses its individual elements. Limited to just 10 units, Libeskind’s tea set is bound to be a great conversation starter.
