Freeman, Michael.
The Modern Japanese Tea Room.

Bologna Damiani: 2007.

"The formal tea ceremony developed in 15th-century Japan is closely circumscribed, as is the space for it: traditionally, chashitsus include windows, an alcove (tokonoma) with flowers and painted parchment, bamboo mats (tatami), and a fireplace on the floor (ro). More recently those traditions-as closely associated with the upper class as "high tea" is in England-have been rediscovered by architects and designers as a perfect match for their contemporary work. Illustrated with 250 captioned color photographs, this book opens with an introduction to the history of the tea ceremony, then presents 35 projects from renowned Japanese designers, from a tree house in Nagano to a portable space in black lacquer."

Hardcover. 10"x9.5", 239 pages, many color illustrations, dust jacket. New.
