Designed by Anna Kraitz
There is hardly anything that is as common as a teacup, yet Anna Kraitz’s Mine is one of those remarkable objects that create something as unexpected as it is beautiful. The handle does not end where handles usually end, it has chosen a different path over the brim and is attached to the inside of the cup. A small detail, yet enough to make Mine something more than an ordinary tea cup, both an everyday object and a sculpture. Mine is made from thin, but impact-resistant, white china.
“I like when the everyday is slightly turned upside down, and when objects become an extension of yourself. This cup has been given personality, a human touch. It is personal and unique, a piece of everyday luxury.”
New bone china. Capacity 40 cl (13.5 fl.oz.).
Gold & Platinum cup: Hand wash only, do not microwave.
Oxblood & celadon cup + plate: Dishwasher & microwave safe.
“Everyday life inspires me. Sometimes I want to share trivial observations. Other times the topics seem more existential. But mostly, the simple, small and everyday matters the most.”
