D-Bro, a Japanese design brand, has created a unique tea set of mirror effect cups called “Waltz” that gain their striking patterns and colors by reflecting them from the saucers they come with.

First, the teacups, which are made from Hasami porcelain, are coated with palladium, a precious metal rarer than platinum and gold. The cups must be absolutely perfect because any small distortion or bump will ruin this unique design effect. Next, they are matched with saucers that have anamorphic designs (much like the artwork in our anamorphic mirror art post). These Japanese art inspired designs look distorted on the saucers but are transformed into more ordered forms by the mirrored cups.

Check these modernly designed teacup sets for yourself and if you like them, you can get hour own set!
