Jenaer Glas Wagenfeld Teapot
Brew some Bauhaus.
Designed in 1931 at the Bauhaus art school in Weimar, Germany, the Wagenfeld teapot is a modern classic, thin-walled and delicate in looks, but anything but. It’s hand-blown from borosilicate glass (which is heat-resistant, microwave-safe, non-porous, and taste-neutral) so style won’t sacrifice sturdiness. The roomy teapot comes in 3 parts—the pot itself, an internal infuser, and a lid— and holds 50.6 ounces. The removable infuser holds about 3 ounces of loose tea. Set out on your table, its dramatic handle and prominent pour spout will make it a centerpiece unto itself.
