I read an article on PIKALAND recently about how students really should create their own opportunities by simply going for it and showing off what they can do by applying their work to packaging or actual objects. It was exactly the right amount of inspiration and kick in the pants to make me create my own set of mock tea packaging!
Terunobu Fujimori’s tea house, Takasugi-an, which literally means “a tea house too high,” stands in Chino, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, atop three chestnut trees. The house is accessible only by ladder, and guests must remove their shoes and leave them on the platform before venturing inside for tea. As an architect, Fujimori is known for his innovative and often whimsical designs, and this freestanding structure certainly pushes the limits of a conventional teahouse. The world’s most stunning treehouses
Talk about a peculiar design on an already peculiar platform as German artist Dust created an awesome looking custom for the upcoming Matt “Lunartik” Jones’ Custom Mini Tea Toy Show starting in Berlin at Gallery 43°. One of the things that stands out about this piece is that it is only the cup, and not the figure popping his head and arms out… but it still does contain a figure who has met his untimely demise :-) I love the concept of this custom and the execution is stellar!
