Boek Mindful Design of Japan; 40 Modern Tea-Ceremony Rooms - Michael Freeman (B-070-2-75)
The Japanese tea-ceremony or, Way of Tea, is one of the most profound manifestations of mindfulness. The ceremony, with its roots in Zen Buddhism, dates as far back as the 15th century and takes place within a tea-ceremony room.
Here, in a fully updated edition of the groundbreaking New Zen, 40 outstanding examples of contemporary Japanese tea rooms are presented, many located within private homes.
The book highlights all aspects of the subject - the design, architecture, garden design and the ceremony itself. And with many differend materials featured - paper, wood, plastic, stone, aluminium, glass and concrete - it is itself an inspirational sourcebook for modern homes.
Every tea-ceremony room included is by a wellknown artist, designer or architect, making this a unique compendium of the best modern interior design in Japan - with designs by Kengo Kuma, Kishi Kurokawa, Terunobu Fujimori, Takashi Sugimoto and Shigeru Uchida.
In these pages you can glimpse the rare world of Japanese mindful design, modern interpretations of the fascinating tea room - an empty space designed for meditation, contemplation and the apprecation of the art of tea making.
