The ‘Tea Bag Coffin' by Jonas Trampedach is a tea cup design that is so ridiculously simple yet so useful and ingenious. A special carved space in the plate serves as a 'coffin' for the tea bag. No more hassle or trying to figure out where to place the damn tea bag.
Jonas Trampedach, a student at the Royal College of Art in Copenhagen, Denmark, playfully justifies and explains his design:
“Where do tea bags go to die?. Usually squashed on the side of the saucer next to the cup, or if you have a little less decorum the table will probably be just fine. Jonas Trampedach has been observing the behaviour of tea drinkers and has evidently been learning a lot. Consequently he has developed a solution to the bag dilemma that is as simple as it is ingenious. With the ‘Tea bag Coffin,’ the drinker can tidily bury the bag under the cup and out of the way. RIP.”
