Coffee, Tea and Dinner Service 30 parts, 1993/1996
The combination of porcelain and stainless steel makes Geminii unique. Most notable is the abundance of intelligent details like the teapot handle that holds the lid in place while pouring and the cantilevered warmer with its free-hanging tea candle. All saucers have a convex centre instead of the usual indentation. All cups are stackable, with the metal ring serving as stacking guide. The teapot with integrated tea strainer is as elegant as it is functional: the handle holds the lid in place while pouring. The tea and coffee services are completed with a sugar bowl and cream jug, available either individually or in the stacked version. The dinner service is inviting through its generous proportions. A complete set includes dinner plate, pasta and salad plate, soup cup and saucer, bowls, serving dishes, gravy boat, and a stacking salt and pepper shaker. All cups stack safely on the stainless steel ring; the place setting, sugar pot with creamer stack too.
