SlOWE / Tea table (Product)


Nowadays, it’s not easy to slow down and empathise the present. The Gong Fu tea method's main focus is on slowing-down, creating a calm state of mind while engaging in a social activity, and it also aims to impress those present, with the making of a tea. Gong fu tea makers use light and cyclic water pouring movements in order to prepare first quality tea. For an outsider, this method is an exciting, joyous and colorful event. SLOWE tea table allows the users to observe this devine ceremony without any diversions. Three cups are sunk into the top of the table, which slightly tilts towards the centre, gently guiding the stream of the water.
