Tei by o’bond
[tei] by O’Bond, also known as Diam Diam Eh (Slow Buddy) - Ming Ming Tea and Wine Research Room, fashioned a melodic chapter of tea flavors expressing memories inherent to Taiwan. Through empirical analysis, the founder reveals his research and re-interpretation of taste and aroma to configure a delicate tea cocktail, expanding the experience and knowledge of taste buds, as well as the usual perception and imaginations of the taste of tea and wine.
The rusted red iron wall and the bark-covered door gracefully narrates a story of warmth among tea, wine, and humanity. The building foundation faces Guangfu South Road, where the traffic constantly roars. Created from the concept of Space Installation Within Space, the circulation configuration extends an invitation to visitors to traverse and become part of the poetic landscape.
The low-key and plain entrance is situated within a dark and narrow alley, an existence that neither welcomes nor rejects. Accompanied by the stirring noise of fermentation, the dim and obscure light next to the feet slowly crawls forward in accordance with the grille shadow. Following the steps steadily, the heart settles down. Brimming with sunshine, the tea room enlightens those present. The tea pavilion, filled with fragrance, co-creates the daily landscape with long benches. It reminds one of the tranquil yet intimate sceneries long ago in the park, where grandpa always enjoyed the shade under the trees.
