Tea drinking and tea ceremonies are the parts of Japanese traditions. Despite the passing years, tea drinking tradition keeps its value and meaning.
Glass Tea House by Tokujin Yoshioka is attractive by its transparent form providing the limitless environment view and by its modern lines.
From the designer:
“The Japanese conception of nature is characterized by its distinctive spacial perception. It involves the sensory realization of the surrounding atmosphere through what may be described as signs of presence, energies, or perhaps the aura. Such way of sensual appreciation of nature’s intrinsics and beauties can be recognized in Japanese tea ceremony practice.”
Shortly, Glass Tea House is the result of the combination with innovative approach and traditions.
