Working on a cultural design project in Japan has inspired Italian Designer Federica Capitani to create a minimalist tea collection for Rosenthal Studio Line, taking influences from Japanese tea culture. The design uses a language of minimal shapes, so that teapot, cups, saucers and bowls can live together in harmony. The mono-materiality of the items in the collection takes its origins from the rounded, soft shape and integrated elements of the teapot, where body and handle are merged together to create a distinctive object with its own discrete aesthetic.

The black teapot is made from solid-black porcelain. The constellation of dots placed on the outer skin of the teacups creates a low-relief ornament that has a lightness of touch and is pleasing to hold, its delicate raised surface also enabling heat dispersal. A lid for the large cup ensures that the tea stays warm for a long time. The natural colours and structure of the bamboo saucers and bowls add a raw warmth to the collection and emphasise the ceremonial character of the set. The collection was recently awarded by the German Design Council with the German Design Award 2015 with special mention.
