For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.

Conceived by Kristoffer Paolo Aguila, an industrial design student at OCAD University in Toronto, this integrated tea service and cart caters to anyone who suffers from the social discomfort that comes with dwindling manual dexterity. The striking birdlike form perches atop two brass twigs, surrounded by a Lazy Susan lined with standard Ikea teacups. It enables would-be hosts to roll, tilt and spin their way through pouring tea without having to grab, grip, pinch, pull – or clean up spills.
