Tea Bag Coffin by Jonas Trampedach


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 that’s ironic enough to let it wither up and die! Well, I’ll tell ya, I’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 ‘Tea bag Coffin’, the drinker can tidily bury the bag under the cup and out of the way. RIP.
