Praise of bamboo Tea Tray Set II is the first Red dot award winning tea tray set, designed by Jeff Dayu Shi. Praise of bamboo Tea Tray Set II is designed with slightly elevated ridge to induce water drainage. The freely arranged bamboo sticks serve as filter and water level indicator, these sticks shaped as quarter of a cylinder symbolized harmony and serenity. However, this design offers more than it meets the eyes, these sticks existed for more functionality than mere aesthetic perception. bamboo sticks have less contact surfaces that maximize air flow, allow more effective tea and water filtering and prevents clogging when tea spillage run through. Meanwhile, when water is poured into the tray, these sticks float up and down vertically that paints a picture of tranquility and elegance. The drainage channel, along with the cotton thread and the pottery sinker, replaces the plastic tube which is often seen in the normal tea tray design. Water goes down along the cotton thread like a glassy water pillar, with the pull of the pottery sinker, into the water container. This eco-friendly design also solves the noise problem existing in the traditional drainage system.

 

 

 

赞竹茶盘II,是第一个获得德国红点奖的中式茶盘,为使用者带来沈静、优雅的品茗气氛,灵感来自云南香格里拉村民堆栈柴薪的方式与建筑的排水系统,应用柴薪摆放的造型作为茶盘滤水器,储水槽置于其下。茶盘中央的四分之一圆柱棍过滤茶水,并防止阻塞;同時,这些三角柱还会因为过多水量的注入而充满生机、带有警惕作用地上下浮动,既可作为注水量的提示,也创造了错落有致的美感。以棉线与黑陶锤代替传统茶盘的塑料排水管,排水时以陶锤牵引顺棉线而下,降至底部的接水罐深处,在视觉上形成彷若结冰的水柱,一并解决了塑料水管不雅和排水的噪音问题。
