Angela Cho, has designed a tea whisk that emphasizes the beauty of tea ceremonies. This western interpretation simplifies and modernizes the intricate lines of its original form. Designed to feel like an extension of the hand, the geometric shapes and sharp corners, offering a juxtaposition to the curvilinear form of a traditional tea whisk. Aside from this function of mixing matcha powder, this piece is meant to develop curiosity and spark a conversation.

EIGEN + ART Lab in Berlin, Germany, is showcasing the works by Jürgen Mayer H. BLACK.SEE is an installation of free standing black sculptures with accompanying wall paintings that are also dark and mysterious. The three-dimensional components are made out of panels which have been milled out into lattice-like, irregular forms that seem rudimentary and incomplete. The vocabulary derives from data protection patterns that aims to protect the personal content of letters sent by government agencies by making sensitive data invisible by presenting a sphere of exclusive knowledge.
