An enduring Canadian design celebrates its 10th anniversary.
One of the first locally designed objects that I quickly coveted after I started working here at Western Living was molo’s “float” tea lantern. It was Vancouver-based molo’s first product line (you may know them now for their much-lauded softwalls and softseating, made from honeycombed Kraft paper), and the glass tea canister and cups are truly works of art: filled with tea (or my favourite, mulled wine), they appear to glow when illuminated with a votive candle underneath. The float series is now celebrating its 10th anniversary since it was launched at ICFF (where they also snagged the Editors Award New Designer), and it’s a testament to its timeless design that the pieces still looks just a gorgeous today. (They’re also a perfectly modern accompaniment for hosting a high tea—stay tuned for our May issue for tips on hosting your own!)Float tea lantern, from $180, available online at molostore.com.
