As a lover of afternoon tea get-togethers, I can definitely see the benefit of having the Faraday tea set on hand. Not only is it beautiful to behold in all of its glass and wood glory, it also completely focuses on the social aspects of preparing and enjoying tea with others.

Created by Seattle-based design collective Free Time Industries, the Faraday tea set allows you to boil your water right there in front of yourself and your guests thanks to the induction plate embedded in the tray. Named after the chemist-physicist Michael Faraday, it also takes on the aesthetic of laboratory instruments in a clean, organic manner.

According to the designers, the Faraday tea set "merges the task of preparing tea with the social experience of consuming it."
