Cha Tea Caddy
Elegant calligraphy, gleaned from the Museum’s stellar collection of calligraphic scrolls, surrounds Freeman Lau’s five-ringed caddy, aligning into names of the five venerated Chinese tea varieties on its lid; Dongding Wulong, Tie Guanyin, Longjing, Dongfang Meiren and Wenshan Baozhong.
Freeman Lau, a founding partner of Hong Kong’s Kan and Lau Design Consultants, is a graphic designer and fine artist, a frequent speaker at international design forums, and the recipient of the HKSAR government’s Bronze Bauhinia Star in recognition of his contributions in enhancing the identity of Hong Kong design.
