4. D-BROS Mirrored Teacups and Saucers
D_BROS, the Japanese home products designer, has created the Waltz reflective cup and saucer duo in which a cleverly mirrored teacup literally reflects the colorful pattern of the accompanying plate. The vivid colors on the saucer are reflected off the cup, producing the illusion that the cup too bears the same pattern. But when the cup is lifted off the saucer its true colors are revealed. Made from Hasami porcelain, a specialty from the Hakata region, each cup is handmade by skilled artisans who ensure that the surfaces are completely even. After all, even the slightest scratch would create distortions throughout the reflection.
