Tea time just took a leap into the 21st century with Monotea from Raphael Morais. This Monotea puts an elegant and contemporary spin on the classic teapot.

I never quite understood why the original teapot design lasted as long as it did. The Monotea from Raphael Morais is more than half the size of a regular teapot, giving you more room in your kitchen cupboards for non-tea related dishware.

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.
