Monotea from Rapahel Morais is a Contemporary Tea Container

Implications - Though it may seem like there is little room for innovation with some well-established products, simple alterations to design will place a product as an innovator in its industry. In fact, today's consumer appreciates when products deviate from formalists, as it offers them something that is familiar, yet still modern.
