‘Presence’ is an object that explores the personal experience of truly slowing down. Through combining the tea ceremony with the soothing sound of water, the project reflects on time and on staying present.
By rethinking the traditional teapot, the substance is prepared in a manner in which the dripping sound of water, and the sudden absence of it, will indicate when the tea is ready to be savoured.
Designed for project Km Zero
Material - High fire clay, metallic filter

Handcrafted in Barcelona, made to order.
The piece questions our constant search for efficiency and optimization and invites for a shared moment of stillness by focusing on sensorial information.
The dripping sound of water, and the sudden absence of it, will indicate when the tea is ready to be savoured.
'Presence' was part of Km Zero, a curated collection of objects conceptualized during the Spanish quarantine and crafted within one kilometre of each designer's home.
