Utanalog, Ceramic Utah Teapot

The Utah teapot is a 3D computer model created in 1975 by Martin Newell, Phd student at the university of Utah, and which has become a standard reference object in the computer graphics community. It is a simple, round, partially concave mathematical model of an ordinary Melitta teapot. The objective of Utanalog by Unfold is to return the iconographic teapot to its roots as a piece of functional dish-ware while showing its status as an icon of the digital world.
