DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tri-chapter Breaktime Tableware Set

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Breaktime Tableware Set

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), we try to bring the power of tranquillity to people’s drinking rituals. Pulling away from the time & space currently inhabited, we experience a magical journey from bud to neuron. “Discipline or Freedom”, mutuopia stimulates ways of usages blended with different lifestyles, amuses the ethos of etiquettes and connects inner-self with grand universe to explore the unknown state of consciousness. Triangular and circular shapes are being played in this set.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The cup fully expresses the aesthetics of the combination of triangular and circular shapes in three-dimension with a marvellous geometric arrangement. The cup is made of 100% porcelain. The triangle shape saucer modernises an innovative yet sophisticated way to serve tea or coffee. The delicate spoon has a pyramidal counterweight that allows it to stand upright. It has been engineered to sit perfectly on the saucer. The saucer and spoon are made of PVD coated zinc alloy in five colours.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The whole tableware set is served with coffee and tea during break time. The triangle shape saucer modernises an innovative yet sophisticated way to serve tea or coffee. The corner is more easily and comfortable to be grabbed by the user. The delicate spoon has a pyramidal counterweight that allows it to stand upright. It has been engineered to sit perfectly on the saucer. The spoon works perfectly when stirring your tea (or coffee) or serving pastry treats. The cup is suitable for any table. It can shape the liquid in a novelty way.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2016 in Shanghai and launched to be produced in May 2017. The collection was exhibited in Salone del Mobile Satellite Shanghai in November 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The cup is made of 100% white porcelain in black matte glaze or transparent shine glaze. The saucer and spoon are made of zinc alloy by pressure casting process. Then use PVD coating to assure them in food grade safety. We offer five colours for the saucer and spoon, blue, gold, rose gold, black and silver, respectively.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We used qualitative research to explore people's daily drinking behaviours and rituals. The primary research methods used were observation and interview. We observed every detail of how people interact with their tablewares, such as the gestures and postures of how people grab a saucer, hold a cup, pick up a spoon and how they sip and slurp different liquids in different occasion. Our participants were in different ages. Consequently, the form, colour and material of tablewares are the most factors.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenge part of this project is to manufacture every object as we wanted. The manufacturer in China was still using old techniques to produce ceramic products. The first version of our porcelain cups was made from a handmade mould. The straight surface wasn't straight enough. Then we persuaded them to combine 3D printing technology with the old tech, which took a long time. However, the result was good, we got the exact form we wanted and the production time was reduced.
