An excellent design idea for a very common problem: “Where to put my used teabag?”. I understand Jonas is still studying at the London Academy of Art and hopes to finalize there in 2009. I wish him good luck and predict him a good future.
Have you ever had an experience with a tea bag? My answer is yes and no. Yes, I have experienced the totally awkward situation of having my tea bag be all used up, and having no place thatâ€™s ironic enough to let it wither up and die! Well, Iâ€™ll tell ya, Iâ€™ve been waiting my whole tea-bagging life for a place to bury my tea bag. And here it is!
Designer Jonas Trampedach provides a loller of a solution:
Where Do tea bags go to die?. Usually squashed on the side of the saucer next to the cup, or if you have a little less decorum the table will probably be just fine. Jonas Trampedach has been observing the behaviour of tea drinkers and has evidently been learning a lot. Consequently he has developed a solution to the bag dilemma that is as simple as it is ingenious. With the â€˜Tea bag Coffinâ€™, the drinker can tidily bury the bag under the cup and out of the way.
