Encouraging a simpler way of life by sparking a newfound appreciation for the elements, the Cast Tea Heater uses fire to heat your brew, re-contextualising the traditional tea-making process with its fuss-free heating method.
Taking inspiration from old cast iron elements on traditional gas stoves, the Cast Tea Heater has been simplified in shape with the gas being replaced by a tea light to keep the tea warm for as long as you wish. Made of powder-coated steel, the black textured surface and cross shape strikes a fine balance between contemporary design and nostalgia; its simplicity, in harmony with MENU’s deeper ethos to create products with an eternal appeal that endure the changing seasons.

Founded in Copenhagen in 2008 by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, Norm Architects specialize in residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, photography and art direction. The company name reflects the group’s emphasis on the importance of drawing inspiration from norms and traditions within architecture and design – particularly the Scandinavian design principles of timeless aesthetics and natural materials, and the modernist values of restraint and refinement. Guided by these principles, Norm Architects produce design that unites good materials and craftsmanship, while embodying beauty, traditions, history and, most importantly, timeless simplicity, where there is nothing more to add or take away.
