Donaven Tan

The interesting use of porcelain and wood gives the tea set a sleek and rustic touch. As beans are added to the inner walls of both teapot and tea cups, they produce a rattling sound when lifted, as if playing a music piece.

11. Trayble
Wang Yiwei, Aaron Chia, Jennifer Tang, Teng Peng

The protruding edges of a traditional tray design makes eating a rather uncomfortable experience. Trayble is designed to accommodate “placed-in” trays.

The design of Trayble aims to encourage more people to return their trays after use and keep the dining environment clean.
