Modern Affordance?

This Lazy teapot was designed by Lotte Alpert and it has a very interesting concept and in away play different idea with Gibson’s affordance. It is natural for us to think that we need  to lift the pot in order to pour the tea, which is what Gibson is talking about in his affordance theory. However, this design made the following motion of using teapot in visually and functionally possible though its design. It’s interesting how small the changes that he made that totally changed the way we interact with our daily object “teapot”. I feel that Lotte Alpert took very different way of our original thoughts on objects and transfer his imagination though his design.
