VOLOCITEE Inc, which is a design firm that builds creative communities to help organizations create innovations, is responsible for creative direction and management.
Their works are not only limited to artwork but architect & interior design and event design that reflect their vision of the future tea ceremony.

The concept

“The TEA-ROOM” interprets a Japanese tea ceremony as one of the Fine Arts of Japan, which consists of garden, architecture, painting, calligraphy, incense, flowers, sound, bowl, food, cloth and ritual.

Then re-contextualize Japanese tea ceremony in “The TEA-ROOM”’s original ways with the concept “What kind of a tea ceremony would Sen no Rikyu make if he was alive today?”

Sen no Rikyū, also known simply as Rikyū, is considered the historical figure with the most profound influence on chanoyu, the Japanese "Way of Tea", particularly the tradition of wabi-cha. He was also the first to emphasize several key aspects of the ceremony, including rustic simplicity, directness of approach and honesty of self.

The art collective has collaborated with the outdoor music festival “TAICOCLUB” in June this year. A tea room was set up in the backstage and welcomed the artists with hospitality.
This occasion was well received by participated artists who are internationally established.

It has already been offered by several businesses to design architect & interior design and produce experience-oriented events.
