  • 1. NUIT BLANCHE INDEPENDENT PROJECT PROPOSAL KINOKO: SUDDENLY IN THE DARK, A TEAHOUSE. CASEY WONG Itsumo Studio
  • 2. Supporting Material The key element that is missing in our accelerated life is practice. If tradition is lacking, it is not the fault of technology, and neither will technology fix the problem. Mobile devices and the web didn’t create our disposable culture and neither will they fix it. It is something that we as beings that experience and as storytellers, will have to fix. Only by doing, will we save what we treasure. We’re all just travelers. Tea ceremony A thoughtful pause Every act considered A spiritual practice The idea evolved out of my appreciation of tea, and the observation that there needs to be a respite from the hectic life where everything is fast. Fast food, fast yoga etc. I wanted to create a teahouse because it is a union of experience and architecture. The power of small spaces to transform experience.

Sitting in it Wardrobes convinced me of the power of small architecture to transform the experience As you can see in the following photos, a tea house has become a platform for ideas, of a space. much as how chairs are icons that symbolize a designer’s values.
