Mirza Teapot with Orange Cosy

DESCRIPTION

With her tail in the air, Mirza runs to the first whistle of the kettle, eager to bring the comfort of a tea to her owner. The teapot is opened by slightly pushing the piece of metal that blocks the lid forward; the tea leaves are placed in the filter and then, sprinkled with boiling water, infused.

Mirza's pedigree features a wooden handle, an aluminium cover and a stainless steel filter. This enamelled white porcelain teapot is handmade in Hungary, according to the artisanal principle of casting which gives it its irregular shape.

Mirza wears an orange cord cosy and thus keeps the tea warm for longer. To wash it, you undress it: once it is dry, you put it back on, it's very simple. She then adopts an upright position, at rest, muzzle up, waiting for orders, looking for a sign.

DETAILS

  • Dimensions: Length 25cm, Diameter 10cm, 1L capacity.
  • The cosy made in collaboration with Petit Pan. This coat comes to cover the Mirza teapot in order to preserve the temperature of the tea. Made of quilted cotton, it has one side in orange velvet and another side with a printed pattern.

ABOUT the MAKER

Tsé & Tsé Associées

Tsé & Tsé associées is a French design company, one of the very rare ones to have remained independent from its launching in 1991. It was founded by two Parisian designers, Sigolene Prébois and Catherine Lévy. 

The Tsé & Tsé team, comprised of less than ten people, masters the design of objects from their conception to their production and distribution. Prototypes are created in their workshop in the Bastille area of Paris. Every object requires special research in finding the best quality manufacturers. Noble materials are used, according to traditional know-how, that favour quality and long life for the objects. Because of this, lamps, dishes and furniture are made in small series, sometimes individually and rarely over 1000 item per year. Every item is unique, and these differences are Tsé & Tsé's inimitable signature.

The two designers began creating objects for themselves, in order to savour every moment of everyday living. The sense of wonder with which they see everyday objects shines through all their creations. Some years later, most of their objects have become bestsellers, while remaining as fresh and delightful as ever. Their latest creations fit in with the others to form an expanding, most original universe.
