What do paper, biodegradable cotton, and tea have in common? Answer: Japanese designer Yuya Ushida. Ushida has created an adorable one-time-use origami tea set. Each product in his tea set is made from just one sheet of paper, tightened using biodegradable cotton string, and incorporates a wooden ball for added flair. Ushida's origami is truly breathtaking, especially when the viewer finds a hidden message on some designs after folding and folding. Ushida's profile on Yuya Vs. Design explains one of his goals in designing: "create products that make people happy."
