Graduate designer Leo Livshetz created this angular, ceramic tea set while studying at Rhode Island School of Design in the USA.
The set comprises a sloping tea pot that rests on its handle, four cups, and a combined sugar bowl and milk jug.
"I wanted to create a tea cup that did not need a handle, but at the same would not get too hot," says the designer, who graduated in 2008.
"The system of edges and corners creates a thick shell around the cup that does not overheat and allows it to be held comfortably without burning the user's hand."
"The creamer slots into the sugar bowl becoming one unit and the tilted tea-kettle is stabilized by the handle that rests on the table."
Livshetz completed the project at a ceramics workshop while studying industrial design at RISD.
