Tea Shop by We Architecs

Posted in architecture by aldorf on January 26, 2010

The designers have used the teapot as the motif for both the shop, logo and PR material. Tiny backlit holes perforate the shelves and back wall providing a large 3D image of a teapot–a powerful eye-catcher. The image of the teapot dissolves as you approach and becomes part of the display stands of the shop. The design of specialist tea retailer, T-magi is intended to allow the shop itself to be perceived as the display window.
