Tea-off was a design competition for tea-kettles. The winning entry One from design studio Vessel Ideation is a poetic combination of traditional style and a classic retro gaming thing. Just without being too clever or having too much surprises. You boils the tea / water directly on the stove. The vessel is white and when the blue pattern emerges, the tea is really. Lovely indeed.

One of the four vessels features a pattern with Space Invaders. The design looks not suited for hardcore-retro-gamers, but more for green-tea fans. What does this mean for our culture? Did the gamers grew older and decent? Or are the Space Invaders meanwhile a fit for classical designs, that will be here for ages?
