Tea Bag Coffin - Stash your trash with class...

An elegant solution to a real issue: where does the tea bag go when its job is done? On the saucer next to the cup isn't the ideal place, if only because it's a wet, brown eyesore. And anywhere else would seem to require the would-be drinker to take leave from his tea, to deposit the used bag in some faraway receptable. Design student Jonas Trampedach came up with this solution, which clevelry and attractively hides the teabag under the cup. The shape of the cutout communicates its function so clearly that no instructions are necessary - and the whole design just "feels right." Turns out, functional designs can be attractive and vice versa!

I think "wet, brown eyesore" is my new favorite phrase. Bravo.
