A cup and saucer that dance together like a match made in heaven. But when separated, the music suddenly stops.

A reflective palladium surface on the cups enable this magic. The vivid colors on the saucer are reflected off the cup, producing the illusion that the cup too bears the same pattern. But when the cup is lifted off the saucer its true colors are revealed.

Made from Hasami porcelain, a specialty from the Hakata region, each cup is handmade by skilled artisans who ensure that the surfaces are completely even. After all, even the slightest scratch would create distortions throughout the reflection.

The Waltz Cup & Saucer is from the super-cool D-Bros brand in Japan. We’ve been adding a lot of new products from them, all of which you can see right here.

  1. I did think it was by Studio Kigi. I saw this on NHK World. Excellent idea though!

    • @Stephanie – right now we’re the only retailer outside Japan and we’re all out of stock 🙁 We’ll be restocking by the end of this month so please check back!
