There is a compelling quality to design that upholds the idea that what you see isn't all that you get. The Srone Tea Tray by Younes Design embodies this concept, slowly revealing more of its elaborate decor despite its initially minimalistic appearance.
An intricate Moroccan motif has been printed with thermochromic paint, visibly white when the glossy ebony surface is heated and an invisible black at room temperature. The look of the smooth serving platter is rendered more intriguing in the way that the graphic zellige fades in as a delicate halo around teapots, teacups and mugs.
The upturned-edge Srone Tea Tray carries itself as an elegant and unadorned contemporary piece when set on display, only exposing its inner beauty when ceremoniously put to use for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
