Mondrian pavilion by Hiroshi Sugimoto in Venice
The ‘glass tea house Mondrian’ is based on a traditional tea house, but can contain only two people plus the tea master. It does a good job combining wood, glass, stone and water in an innovative way.
Hiroshi Sugimoto worked together with traditional craftsman and tea masters from Kyoto. It looks like the tea house has been brought back to its’ bare essentials compared to the traditional version and Sugimoto elevated it to a new level. The exhibition and the tea ceremonies in Venice runs until 22 November.
