Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI.BASEL 2024 A tea room made of benibana-dyed Oitama Tsumugi symbolises the resonance of null philosophy, digital nature, and traditional craftsmanship. This tea room has no pillars due to its tensegrity structure and is connected at the top and bottom by natural wood placed in the centre and safflower-dyed strings in the four corners. This moblie tea room centres on the principles of 'Somoku-to' and 'AII sentient beings possess Buddha-nature,' aiming to create a space that symboilses the spirit of the land, history, and DIY culture. It embodies the universal truth of classic Japanese phliosophy that all life has Buddha-nature, making it a place that feels the breath of computaitonal life.
