The FJ Essence Tea set was originally designed by Finn Juhl in 1952 for the 100th anniversary of the famous Danish porcelain manufacturer Bing & Grøndahl; but the complex shape of the set made it difficult to manufacture and it was never put into production. Architectmade rediscovered the original drawings and relaunched the FJ Essence Tea set more than 60 years later in its original design. The tea set exemplifies the unique aesthetics of Finn Juhl. The crisp white hand glazed surface curves into those well-known organic shapes that have made Finn Juhl internationally famous. The FJ Essence Tea set includes a Tea Cup and a Saucer and a Teapot and its Sugar Bowl.

The FJ Essence tea set is part of Architectmade's collection.
