Soothe your post-Breaking Bad depression with the lighter side of chemistry. Designer Agustina Bottoni’s Glow Set brews tea in a flask handcrafted from cork, turned wood, and borosilicate glass. The design heats and illuminates the tea by candlelight, making a spectacle of steeping over the course of three to four hours. The rotating flask magnifies the light so that it glows, a unique, biophilic lamp. With this ergonomic tea kit, every cup is guaranteed to feel like a home science experiment.
