Product description

float tea lantern is made with a double glass wall, which encloses a vacuum to provide thermal insulation for hot or cold beverages. The insulated wall allows for the simple form of a cylinder without a handle—simply hold and pour the way you would a wine bottle. The tealight candle burning below the lantern keeps tea hot and emits warm, ambient light as it passes through the tones of the suspended tea.

Stephanie Forsythe + Todd MacAllen designed the original float tea lantern in 2001, as part of a study to create simple and beautiful objects made from a sole material. Inspiration for the tea lantern came from the idea that a small everyday object could define an intimate place of gathering or contemplation through qualities of light, warmth, aroma and taste.
