‘greet tea table’ by ziinlife!

 

 

 

the ‘greet tea table’ draws its function from the activities surrounding tea making culture. the table top and storage unit comprises all of the elements necessary to make a good cup of tea, including a vessel of purified water, cups, and other accessories. the design offers a practical storage solution, combined with an elegant and charming aesthetic. the ‘greet tea table’ embraces new ways to pay tribute to old traditions, and has been conceived to encourage more young people to engage in this historic custom.

‘reaching bookshelf’ by ziinlife!

 

 

 

the ‘reaching bookshelf’ offers an interesting interaction between books and a shelf. it is visually defined by an arc-shaped open shelf that appears as if it is being pushed out of its parameters by too many volumes, which at the same time makes your literature easily accessible. an enclosed area, which is reachable via an accordion-style door, prevents dusk, while keeping a room looking neat and tidy.
