THE DESIGN OT THE ''HAUS SCHEU''HONEYPOT IS INSPIRED BY THE DESIGN LANGUAGE AND IDEOLOGY OF THE AUSTRIAN ARCHITECT ADOLF LOOS. THE DESIGN EMPHASISES THE ''ORNAMENT AND CRIME'' THEORY AND IS REMINISCENT OF THE HIGHLY FORMALISTIC FEATURES OF THE FAMOUS SCHEU HOUSE IN HIETZING, VIENNA/AUSTRIA. THIS IS REFLECTED BY THE THREE STEPS WHICH SERVE AS A FUNCTIONAL STORAGE AREA FOR THE HONEY DRIPPER, ALLOWING IT TO ELEGANTLY OVERCOME THE LAWS OF GRAVITY. THE HONEY POT AND ITS LID ARE MADE OF GLAZED BONE CHINA, WHILE THE HONEY DRIPPER IS MADE OF PRESSED AND POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL.
