The lid filter cup based on Chinese tea culture for thousands of years, with its unique structure and shape design, gives users a strong sense of contradiction. It is a collision between traditional and professional tea art and modern minimalist life, and a contrast between industrialized functional products and cultural artworks. However, it is not until the product is actually integrated into users’ daily life that the abrupt contradiction is quietly transformed into an appropriate harmony.

Inspired by the jade rabbit inlaid gemstone and green glazed incense burner, the product creates a visual aesthetic with a strong sense of history through the fusion of representative cultural relics in form. The introduction of the traditional Chinese lotus flower pattern and cloud pattern is a further decoration of the aesthetic and conveys a vision of blessing and good fortune. The wonderful combination of form achieves the extension of the product in interactivity and functionality. Together with the choice of materials of secret rare earth mineral glaze, the combination of 33 modern craftsmanship techniques and inherited techniques, such as double-sided hollow carving and wiry enamel, ensure that the product brings multi-level enjoyment to users’ five senses in using and playing, and stimulates their reverie of Oriental tea culture. The functional extension is reflected on the deepening of the product as a tea set in terms of professionalism and the broadening of the applicable environment. The innovative lid filter mode simplifies the process of traditional tea drinking into three steps while ensuring the reservation of tea flavor, thanks to the design team’s in-depth study of tea culture, making users enjoy the pleasure of drinking tea in the fast-paced modern life. The structural changes brought by the integration of the form with the green glazed incense burner enable the product to serve as an ornament and incense burner in furniture, providing convenience for users with the same professional performance.
