Newcomer Chun-Tso Liu’s Round Square Teaware collection simplifies the traditional. Based on a nod to the traditional and traditionally adorned and ornate teaware of Tea Ceremonies, this collection attempts to break the mold, literally in some senses, of what traditional and a modern design aesthetic can give birth to.
Based out of Taiwan, Liu is an emerging designer who after studying Mechanical Engineering in Taipei decided Industrial Engineering was a clearer and more thoughtfully aligned pathway. His background in engineering, the thinking and processes he brings with him, result in a well-crafted design object. This collection is beautifully minimal, and challenges the user to rethink the way that they would normally engage with the object. Liu is one to watch.
