Steam Tower is a Scandinavian version of a traditional Asian steamer. Made from porcelain, the bowls can be stacked in the oven, enabling the preparation of several dishes at once. The Steam Tower works by placing it in the oven over water and when the water evaporates into steam, the steam will circulate around through the layers. Designed by Christian Bjørn in cooperation with Michelin chef Morten Køster, who wrote an inspirational cookbook that accompanies the Steam Tower.

Reminiscent of wooden building blocks or a collection of miniature books, London-based design duo, DesignWright have created a new desk accessories named BURO for Lexon‘s 20th anniversary. All these common gadgets we see in the office like the stapler, calculator or the ubiquitous calendar have turned BURO into a practical and coherent stationery. With each object taking the form of a simple block, they can be stored in any orientation and neatly aligned or stacked on top of each other. Available in green, grey or purple.
Introducing Lex, Seth & Carrie, the evil tea, sugar and coffee storage jars designed with an evil glint in their eyes to tell you what’s inside (T: tea, S: sugar & C: coffee), and their heads have room to fit the handle of a spoon. Do I hear Mwahahahaha…?
As part of Grain Creative’s 2011 new business plan they brainstormed what type of gift to send to potential new business clients. Using a selection of tea from T2 they have created four individual tea boxes and personified them to reflect the names of the following popular flavours of tea: Gorgeous Geisha, English Breakfast, Chai and French Earl Grey. Each box holds a few tea bags and a small scroll showing images of recently completed work with an invitation to learn more about the company. I love the cute packaging!
