Zenpo Awataguchi who is the apprentice of Shuko Murata and also a legendary tea master of the ultimate feel of “wabi”, was enjoying his meal by boiling hot water for his Japanese tea with no other instrument but a pot for hot sake called “okan”. Zenpo thought that even with no possession of famous tools nor a tea room, the heart of “sado” exists in those who understand the “spirit of tea” and can entertain others without being bound by manners. In contrast to the “formal” or “Nanaha”, which is a slow food style of Japanese tea café, “Nanahaso” is a deformed version of “So” or “informal” dining which proposes a new style of enjoying Japanese food with wine under the concept of “formal, semiformal and informal” philosophy of the world of Japanese tea. Therefore, I chose Zenpo’s Kannabe as the motif of my design because he practiced the tea room with most freedom. Kannabe pots are set against each seat at the ceiling and are designed to be the lightings of the room creating a unique space. In the open air tea ceremony one is to seek for the “graciousness of space”, here I hope it becomes a space where one finds the “graciousness of instruments”. (Masahiro Yoshida/KAMITOPEN)
