This coffee and tea service reflects renowned architect and designer Zaha Hadid’s signature design in its fluid, revolutionary form. This set—a tray, sugar bowl, milk jug, teapot, and coffeepot—uses unexpected forms for these traditional objects. The coffeepot is the central, sleek tower and is nested underneath the teapot, a flat, rounded piece. The two smaller pieces hold milk and sugar. Hadid designed the service to be configured in two ways: one for functionality, and one for display.
