Butterfly Stroke

Categories: Art + Graphics


Don’t get too aflutter over this tea packaging; it’s only a concept from Yale student Yena Lee, but what a concept! In our Earth Day survey of items that take their form directly from nature, this one, not yet on the market, has to still rank high. Lee’s genius was not just in turning the prosaic into the uncommonly beautiful, but in synthesizing the traditional function of an element—the paper label at the end of a teabag string—with the form and behavior of a butterfly. Has a pair of butterfly wings ever looked more natural perched on the edge of a cup?

    • Hello Lubayna. The design is a student project, and, to our knowledge, a prototype only. Kindly contact the designer for more information via the links provided in the editorial. Good luck!
