'I think design is starts with tiny seed, that is sparked by creativity and eventually blossoms into a great design'
The ‘Round Square Teaware’ is the latest creation by the talented Taiwan-based designer Chuntso Liu. The designer, who was also responsible for the fascinating ‘Ripple Tray’ in 2009, presents a new range of tableware, which he created for Taiwanese design company Koan Design.
The collection of tableware is the result of Liu’s study of the laws of the universe and his fascination for the emulation with nature, from which humans create objects. While the rounded cups and the elegant teapot are an organic and logical shape for holding water, the cube-shaped handles are a tangibly human expression left on the surface that creates a subtle yet striking contrast, transcending functionality through decoration that both adds meaning to the object and forms an emotional bond with the user – aimed for by the designer.
Round Square Teaware is a minimalist set, including a teapot, tea cups, and saucers that are full of contrasts. The elemental shapes of circles and squares both manifest in the pot and mugs. Created by Taiwan-based designer Chuntso Liu for KOAN DESIGN Co., Teaware’s organic shapes are decorative yet purely functional as well.
