威尼斯设计师Luca Nichetto很早之前便产生了设计茶具的想法，后与俄罗斯设计师Lera Moiseeva共同合作设计了这套茶具。在一些国家，传统茶文化即便在当今时代仍对社会关系产生着重要的影响。对于世界上的很多区域，尤其是亚洲国家来说，茶道是十分重要的传统，其影响力远超出其他传统元素。近乎神圣的茶道影响了它们各自不同的文化。Luca Nichetto通过观察俄罗斯的饮茶方式发现他们并不使用杯子，而是用没有手柄的陶瓷小碗来喝茶。Luca Nichetto意识到这个小细节为整个茶仪式增添了更多的神圣感。
The idea of designing a tea set comes from a personal research, started long ago from the Venetian designer Luca Nichetto and developed together with the Russian designer Lera Moiseeva, on the ancient and modern sharing rituals that, even nowadays, play an important role in the social relationships in several countries. The tea ceremony, more than others, represents an important tradition in many areas of the world, and particularly in Asia, where it became almost sacred, influencing this way numerous cultures. By observing how tea is consumed in Russia, Luca Nichetto has noticed that the infuse is served not in cups but in small bowls without the handle and realized how this small detail gives more solemnity to the whole ritual.
The Aureola tea set is composed of a main body, a filter, and two cups, made in fine porcelain colored in mass and the pigments, obtained from metal powders, are commonly used to create the finest oriental lacquers.
As the heat propagates from the center of the bowl towards the outside, so the energy aura of the people involved in the sharing rite seems to expand in wider circles towards the others. From this image takes its name the tea set Aureola, which has on its surface the signs that graphically represent this concept.
