Unbreakable shows, delightfully, how Eastern and Western cultures are inseparable – its new material contributes to the new experience. Through the Unbreakable, the traditional teapot and mug pairing is given a new lease of life.
Unbreakable is a result of the modern technological material used to replace traditional teapot production. The designers hope to integrate past and contemporary tea making experiences to present a new tea making method.

Unbreakable shows, delightfully, how Eastern and Western cultures are inseparable – its new material contributes to the new experience; its material combines ceramics with an edible and environmentally friendly silicone. The resultant product is a conflicting material of soft and hard object. The silicone also makes the teapot less difficult to clean.
One of the key features of Unbreakable is the spout and its convex and concave patterns that provide two unique tea making experiences. In addition, both sides of the teacups are built with multiple functions. One can experience the spirit of ‘tea-ism’ in depth and appreciate the smell of the tea before tasting the tea. Lastly, the tea strainer bears similar characteristics to the silicon and it can lift up the tea leaves easily once the tea has steeped long enough.
