Storm in a Tea Cup by John Lumbus and Laikingland


Storm in a Tea Cup (The New English) is a limited edition created by designer John Lumbus and produced by Laikingland and The New English.

"The Storm in a Tea Cup pays homage, in a very literal sense, to the famous idiom meaning a small event that has been exaggerated out of all proportion. Turn the handle and the golden boat rides the mechanical waves, above the stormy clouds periodically reveal a shining bolt of lightning.

Laikingland is a creative label, based in both the UK and The Netherlands, who design and manufacture beautifully crafted kinetic objects that engage, and evoke a sense of play and nostalgia.
The company was founded in 2008 and is built upon a life long friendship between artist, Martin Smith and engineer, Nick Regan. Since it’s inception Laikingland has specialised in producing highly crafted limited editions, working closely with invited artists and designers to realise their kinetic ideas." Crazy!
