Tea For Three? Don’t Mind If I Do.

Designed for modern microliving, the Double Compact Tea Maker does just as the name suggests. It’s been reduced to the bare essentials without sacrificing functionality to accommodate small households of 1, 2, or 3 people with limited kitchen space.  The “pot” actually consists of two internal pots. The infuser and the teapot are located inside of the water pot. The advantage of this twist in design is that it provides a better brewing experience by eliminating the possibility of accidental overturning and drip. Furthermore, it heats the pot in all direction to ensure an even brew.

The most important part of the project is the innovative brewing method. The tea maker directs the water to the inside of the pot tanks to the inverted conic structure inside the steam top where it is boiled. In just twenty minutes, the tea pot will fill with water. This gradual filling brews the tea in a tasty way without burning it or tainting the taste. Not only function, its glass-on-glass design is almost artistic and sculptural, meaning you’ll be happy to leave it out on your countertop.

Pantone Queen Diamond Jubilee Color Guide.

For Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, celebrating 60 years of her reign over England, advertising agency Leo Burnett London and pantone have developed a numbered shade guide to her majesty’s most memorable choices of color for her stately ensembles. The creative companies have collaborated in order to assemble a limited edition pigment manual picturing the queen’s six decades on the British throne. Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the pantone color institute reflects upon her majesty’s notable shade selections, including ‘pantone 13-0755 primrose yellow’ of Queen Elizabeth II’s outfit worn in April of 2011 to the wedding of her grandson, Prince William to Kate Middleton or ‘pantone 13-4411 crystal blue’ for which Eiseman notes, ‘blue is a colour staple in the queen’s wardrobe, it’s a color that communicates constancy and it is also symbolic of her devotion to the british people.

Blues traditionally have calming properties and she is often seen wearing them during difficult times…’. The small, queen-shaped book contains sixty years of Queen Elizabeth II’s most memorable wardrobe shades, printed by precision imaging using HP indigo technology and is comprised of sixty separate images picturing varying pigments. Beginning with color choices dating back to the queen’s coronation, each of the individual shade references include the date and location of that particular ensemble. Images of her majesties wardrobe selections were matched by pantone’s emulation system, achieving exact color matching from the pantone shade range.
