Tea Light is a re-design and upgraded to Teelicht, a warmer for teapot. The overall shape is formed by a stretched hexahedron cutting into two halves which fit each other with a continuous curve. The gap in the middle ensures the air circulation and stabilizes the air flow. A hexagon is formed by circular cutting on top for a balanced aesthetic appreciation.
Power smooth is a home energy storage device developed by the designer for Guangdong DYNAVOLT Power Technology Co., Ltd. in 2015.
