Mirrored Teacups That Cleverly Reflect the Colorful Pattern of Their Accompanying Saucers

D-BROS, the Japanese home products designer, has created the Waltz cup and saucer duo in which a cleverly mirrored teacup literally reflects the colorful pattern of the accompanying plate.

A cup and saucer that dance together like a match made in heaven. But when separated, the music suddenly stops. A reflective palladium surface on the cups enable this magic. 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.

Although the set is currently sold out at Spoon & Tamago, it is available via the D-BROS site.
