We’re not sure why the folks behind Tonfisk [2] named themselves after the so-called “chicken of the sea” (the word means “tuna” in Finnish) but nonetheless we think they’re a great catch. Among their many novel designs, we especially love the Warm [3] tea set.

These sturdy ceramic cups and teapot feature removable bracelets made of bent laminated wood that both insulate the beverage inside and protect your hands from the hot surface. Without protruding handles the cups stack easily and the wooden bands also raise the cup above the table surface eliminating the need for coasters.

$50 from Composition [4]

Additional retailers are also listed on the Tonfisk website [5].
