The architecture studio Raams has created a design retreat in Shanghai so that young and old alike can enjoy the ritual of a cup of tea.
A new corner dedicated to the ritual of a cup of tea has opened in the dense urban area of western ShanghaiMini Cuppa Tea Shop is a project carried out by the architecture studio Raams in collaboration with Porcelanosa Group.
The interior design studio devised a system of white modular blocks which frame the shop throughout and create a textured and flexible architectural interior.
Raams chose to use symbolism as an artistic expression and formulated a series of visual messages made by hand in the over 400 blocks installed in the tea shop.
The space highlights the limited variety of colours and the intense contrast between the white that surrounds the entire room and the blue furniture. A design that is accentuated thanks to theBottega Acero collection by Porcelanosa, with the general flooring in this building than creating a seamless effect.
With the appearance of a cement floor, this flooring does not aim to be the centre of attention. On the contrary: it further intensifies the elements around it, but while adding a touch of elegance and simplicity.
