Ripple Effect Tea Table

The elegant “Ripple Effect Tea Table” was designed by Jeonghwa Seo and Hanna Chung. It was made with ash, plywood, earthen ware, and pure water.

"The tea table attempts to deliver an interface for analyzing the way of considering cultural differences in psychological level through the process of design and form. Business organizations need to be culturally sensitive when entering new markets or tossing out new products. On a similar note, we here want the design fraternity to consider cultural nuances and mentalities when designing in order to make design more poignant and meaningful.
There is a belief by Asian people that small changes in an individual’s life can have an impact and have a certain effect to the whole community, which in a psychological term is called a “ripple effect”.
The process that takes place when the ripples are formed and slowly expands to disturb the whole water layer then becomes the visual symbolism of a deeper psychological understanding of what we are trying to articulate in the design of this tea table."
