Anabela Chan x Babaobox
See our creation of a pair of beautifully hand-crafted bone-china tea cups; with a unique Poppy flower butterfly print created for Babaobox, hand-gilded with a delicate 18 carat gold rim. Inspired by the beauty and beastial duality of the poppy flower; the Chinese cultural obsession of tea-drinking and Hong Kong's history with the Opium War, the Poppy teacups take cultural, historical and aesthetic influences on the theme of Obsession and the potent colour Red. In a world obsessed with digital gadgets and social media, the coupling tea cups encourage human interaction and conversation; a moment of Zen and the luxury of tea-drinking and intimate pastime with a friend.
The world is becoming more obsessive—from a global addiction to mobile games to K-Pop plaguing all ages with symptoms of hysteria. Obsessions fuel purpose and striving for that greater purpose can be addictive. Box 2 explores whether obsessions is an essential ingredient for success. Join us in a diagnosis of obsessions from curators: Anabela Chan, Adrian Wong, Samantha Reid and ESKYIU (Marisa Yiu and Eric Schuldenfrei). Order Box 2 for a tangible experience that embodies their passions and find out how obsessions drive their creativity and success.
This is a limited edition of 400 boxes with a unique and auspicious numbering system.
