There is an elegant beauty to tea sets that speaks of civility and refinement, and the Glitch Reality II project takes them to whole other, technological level. Instead of going through the traditional process of creating a tea set, this one was stunningly created using a "combination of 3-D scanning, 3-D printing, and a dose of human manipulation," according to Fast Co Design.

Designed by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez, Glitch Reality II references the flaws that often take place with new technological advancements. Instead of trying to correct these flaws, this tea set embraces them, turning them into poetic aesthetics that captivate viewers instead of repelling them. As the artist puts it, Glitch Reality II takes on "the glitches from the analogue-to-digital-to-analogue translation.” Stats for 3D Printed Tea Sets Trending: Older & Mild
