Sawaya & Moroni (Milan, Italy, founded 1984)
Tea & Coffee Set ca. 1997
sterling silver
10.38 x 7.25 x 5.13″ (coffee pot)

This tea set by architect Zaha Hadid is both sculptural and functional. As shown, it looks like a block of buildings. But, it disassembles into a coffee pot, teapot, sugar and creamer. The coffee pot and teapot are shown at the rear with long handles. The creamer is shown at the front with a long handle and stacked on top of the sugar. The larger vessels have hinged lids that are flush with the top.
