Designed To A Tea

Tea becomes a framed work of art as leaves gently unfurl while they steep in this contemporary teapot. Sorapot's architectural shape and simple functionality bring tea's quiet beauty into sharp focus. Made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone, the Sorapot articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way. Designed by former UncommonGoods copywriter Joey Roth. Assembled and polished by hand. Made in China.

Joey Roth

Brooklyn designer (and former UncommonGoods copywriter), Joey Roth uses stories as the initial sketches for his designs. He thinks about characters, scenes and conversations, then designs an object that will feed this narrative. He's fascinated by the meanings that designed objects convey and by ritual behavior.

Roth used to be a student of creative writing, and loved it because it allowed him to construct entire worlds for his characters. He now tells stories through product design, and still strives to make each product an immersive world.
