The way that people serve and drink tea in their homes has not changed a great deal in generations yet the suggestion presented by the Iceberg & Cafe Serre set is one that might have enticed people one hundred years ago, as effectively as it could today.
The design is by Guillaume Delvigne and Ionna Vautrin, producing a pair of cups and saucers that each has a different function. Both have been fabricated with raised protrusions in their bases that come about halfway up the height of the vessels' insides. One forms a slot for the insertion of a stirring spoon while the other acts as a plinth for your cube of sugar. Equally useful as a couplet of coffee cups, the Iceberg & Café Serré take otherwise recognizable shapes with little pinchable handles.
