Designer: Matthew Pauk

Tripot is a minimalist teapot designed by Boston-based designer Matthew Pauk. The reinterpreted teapot is made of ceramic and sits on a three-legged base. The unique base is not only a design statement, but serves a purpose as well; the user can place a small candle underneath the base to keep the teapot warm without the use of an auxiliary device.
“The spout is positioned for maximum yet controlled liquid flow. The animalistic design language gives Tripot its character, attitude, and stout humorous personality.”
The images show a pretty detailed look on the production and molding of the teapot. I’m always curious to see how ultra-organic forms are created. The design of Tripot is refreshing and flowing – similar to the tea it encloses. I love the idea of leaving space underneath the teapot to fit a small candle.
