The six-piece Creemy Tea & Coffee set re-imagines the traditional tea service with a futuristic silhouette, contrasting straight tubular handles with soft curves. The combination of delicate details with strong forms makes Creemy a visually striking collection that also creates a unique tactile experience. But, in addition to having exceptional aesthetic qualities, the set is also very functional and ergonomic.

A modern take on a classic farm table, this piece is animated by dynamic criss-crossing leg braces. It is more visually complex than it initially appears; the braces are attached flat to the square legs, which are turned at angles away from the edges of the top. The braces thus spiral around each other, attaching at beam-midpoints below the top. Different views display the changing relationships between the elements. The solid lumber top is 1.5 inches thick. This allows the top to cantilever without an apron or cross braces and also means the table can accommodate a variety of chairs. Though the table is beautifully crafted, the braces seem to be slapped onto the legs, with exposed square ends. This offers a modern play on rusticity.

Twin Line is a combination of faucet and filter which allows the same water source to be used for two distinct purposes. The two water outlets have hinged fittings. By turning the lever to one side, the faucet is turned on while the filter is activated by displacing the lever to the opposite side. The water is filtered through an innovative carbon block system which reduces chlorine taste and odors and removes particulate matter.
