The Tea Cup Chair Embodies a Simple Modification to Greatly Alter its Image

In the Tea Cup Chair, the iconic egg chair image has been altered to bring a different picture to mind. The retro seating object comprises the familiar semi-spherical white shell and the plushy red upholstery, but this version also includes an oversized handle that looks like something you would find on a teacup.

The designer positioned this loop against the upper part of the pod, suggesting that the coffee cup might have been manually tipped over with it. When you view the Tea Cup Chair from the rear, you'll notice that the center of the dome has been flattened into a small circle, imitating the practical base of a stable mug. The cotton cushion copies collecting liquid at the bottom, and the tilted armchair welcomes your easy entry.
