Alessi Silver Tea & Coffee Tower May Contain a Robot Voiced by Paul Reubens

Far be it from me, a blogger with only the most perfunctory grasp of the English language to criticize a legitimate artist, but $30,000 for a tea pot? The Earl Grey within better literally send me to the stars.

Price aside, this thing really is sleek, sexy and functional. In addition to the long, flat tea pot, London-based designer Zaha Hadid also included a coffee pot (the tall bit), milk jug and sugar bowl. Everything fits together to make a tray that changes form depending on how the owner wants to use it. My way would be to recreate scenes from Flight of the Navigator, as if the headline didn't give that away already. [20 Ltd. via Uncrate]
