Storm in a Teacup!


This might be the most exciting product I have seen all year!

Storm in a Teacup is a limited edition kinetic sculpture by UK designer John Lumbus. As you turn the handle on the teacup, the little boat will ride on the moving waves, while the stormy clouds reveal a bolt of lightning! These are available in Dutch and English designs.

I’m not actually sure whether you can drink tea out of them… I doubt it, but I love them!
