After the end of the day, people like to drink a cup of tea, relax themselves from a bustling day and prepare for the next challenges.
The transparent material blends with the background to present” Empty” as philosophy of Zen. One of the handrails is more spacious than the other side, easy to place teacup. Using green bamboo as legs, when sitting on it to meditate, echoing the flavor of the bamboo, close your eyes as if hearing the whistle of wind blowing through.
