02 Tea Cup is the refined evolution of its predecessor, Otea.
02 is a discursive design exercise investigating the use of functional semantics to manifest what I see as an important aspect in Korean objects: co-existence of extreme customs and freedom.
The cup is hand crafted by celebrated ceramicist Mr. Son Min-Young and produced in I-Cheon, Korea by the design of Sung. The interior of the cup is glazed while the exterior surface is matte polished.
O2 is SJL's first auto production in limited edition of 200. Each copy is hand signed and numbered at the bottom of the birch base and presented in a paulowinia box.
