Marc Newson Signs Hand Crafted Tea Set

Industrial Designer Marc Newson recently collaborated with Georg Jensen, and designed a tea service in silver marking a 25 year relationship between the Danish label. The 5 piece set sees Newson explore his multitude of design and crafting skills in their timeless aesthetic, which is synonymous with the Georg Jensen’s pieces.

There are only 10 editions of the five-piece set available, each of which costs £82,000 and will be made to order in the company’s Copenhagen workshop.

Consisting of a teapot, coffee pot, creamer, sugar bowl and tray, the collection takes organic shapes with subtle natural features with a borderline sculptural aesthetic

The edge of the tray and the bases of the tea and coffee pots are wrapped in rattan, and handles that extend out from the side of the pots are made from mammoth tusk.

The teapot, coffee pot and creamer’s handles are made from responsibly sourced mammoth which feature in an ergonomic design. Other special details include woven edges and carefully crafted bases made from natural rattan.

Offered in a limited edition of 10 pieces, each series requires over three months of hammering required to achieve their final finish.
