Shuang (双) Espresso Cup & Saucer Set

30.00

The Shuang (双) Espresso Cup & Saucer set represents the sometimes challenging and disharmonic duality commonly found in Chinese society—that is, a pairing of people, things, or phenomena that are often in conflict and yet coexist by necessity. And that conflict is the root of why the Chinese practice guanxi—the time-intensive, relationship-building art form of finding commonalities that benefit everyone.

In the same way, a user is challenged to find his guanxi with the Shuang Espresso Cup & Saucer set: by finding an appropriate way to hold and drink from it. It is not immediately intuitive, but over time, one comes to understand why overcoming difficulty leads to appreciation, and appreciation leads to greater enjoyment.
