Miss Believer’s post about the tea submarine below reminded me of something I stumbled upon a while ago. Another piece of design that is intended to prompt a smile while you’re brewing your tea, this is a simple (as the best designs frequently appear to be) infuser that will float in your cup. With a sharks fin! Yay!
The designer is Argentinian Pablo Matteoda; here’s what he has to say about it:
INFUSION means to extract certain properties from an soluble ingredient such as tea leaves , herbs or fruit by soaking in liquid (water) until it gets saturated. So we can say that a infuser is the in charged of make this happen. This is a ludic point of view about the color given off from the phenomenon, wich makes more interesting the waiting of the whole process.
I’m not convinced by the rather orange substance seeping from the shark, it must be said, but a hungry shark doesn’t tend to leave behind trail of rich Assam colouring…
