christine misiak

designer christine misiak emailed me over the weekend and i was blown away by her new/old tea sets. based in durham england, christine created her unique tea sets as her final project at northumbria university. afterwards she showed the set at the 2007 new designers exhibition where she received the peter walker award for innovation in product design. what i love so much about these new/old teasets is the way she reuses old tea set parts and combines them with pieces from new tea sets. a little bit of the old and new is such a fun idea- and it certainly gives the set a distinct look (you can see sketches from christine's design process right here). christine's sets aren't currently for sale but you can view more of her work and contact her online right here. be sure to check out her other tea sets in which she's repaired and repainted found tea sets in bold colors. [thanks, christine!]

I love these! Giving an innovative "2nd chance" to something old and beautiful is so stylish, humorous and satisfying!

I love these, what a fun idea!!! It's for those who cannot think of displaying the old stuffy, silver in their homes.
