Tonfisk Warm Ceramic & Wood Tea Set

Tonfisk A friend recently turned me on to Finnish design house Tonfisk and it's gorgeously simple Warm tea set. Constructed of clean, white porcelain, the tea set is then accented by laminated, bent wood that not only insulates the tea, but acts as a buffer so you don't burn your hands. This novel design is topped off with a cork stopper so no tea will leak out of either the pot or your mug. The product has been so well-received, it was recently named by Wallpaper* as a design icon of the last decade.

Further perusing of the company's site, I discovered a number of other great finds, including the Shake salt and pepper shakers, the Kinos clean and simple sushi set and the Oma lemon squeezer, that allows you to juice a half lemon (or orange) into this handy little basin and then pour it out through a small hold in the side.

Tonfisk products can be find around the world in many retail outlets, including the MoMA Design Store and MOSS in New York, Scandinavian Details in San Francisco and Willow in Chicago.
