Tea for One is a space-saving personal teapot designed by Richard Hutton for Droog Lab. The minimalist design is made entirely of white porcelain and is cut in half so that it stands on a broad, balanced base. Ideal for college students and anyone striking out on their own, this contemporary teapot makes just one cup of tea. Part of a collection, the Dutch teapot echoes classic Chinese design and was made in Shenzhen, China, where many items are copied for the mass market. Highlighting what gets changed in a “copy,” the collection strives to bring attention to the creative decisions that go into making all copycats and to show that unoriginality can be inspiring, too. The group of designs was exhibited at Today Art Museum, Beijing, and OCT Art and Design Gallery in 2013, and many of the final products are available on GSelect today.
