Tea ceremony has a long history in China. Tea ceremony is an etiquette of life in a manner of tea, and it is an approach of self-cultivation. Tea ceremony strengthens friendships, promotes self-cultivation, and learns etiquette by making tea, admiring tea, and savoring tea, all of which are consistent with the Eastern philosophy advocating “purity and simplicity.” The combination of tea art and ceremony, both of which reciprocally embraced, is the result of exceptional unity of materiality and spirit. The house owner of this design project expects to have this indoor space where tea culture plainly conformed to daily life. The artists’ creations are no longer unrealistic, but accessible to customers who can appreciate the house owner’s artistic collections blended with lifestyle, where invites customers to savor the taste of tea with aesthetics of art. The artworks ingeniously arranged make customers can savor their teas with favored tea utensils, who can physically and mentally immerse themselves in an art performance of tea life.
