Sofia Tea Set (Tea Set) by SERAP KORKMAZ
2016 - 2017, Golden A' 3D Printed Forms and Products Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The tea is one of the irreplaceable parts of Turkish culture and it is almost a ritual in our geography. The slim waisted tea glass is an iconic object, which is a classic that comes to the mind first when we say Turkish art. Therefore, the tea set has been our first project in our series of neoclassical works that blend Turkish culture and Modern design. With Sofia Tea Set where traditional lines unite with minimalism, we aim to give a new impulse to Turkish design and introduce our culture to foreigners. It is also a stand in silence to our hometown and the richness of Turkish culture as the Designers.
