Rather than a traditional Japanese teahouse style, the exhibition space plays with various aspects of tea, creating a unique Icelandic teahouse experience designed by the design team Attikatti.AttikattiTeaser_photo_JuliaSchygulla3

The exhibition presents tea in unusual, non-traditional ways. Part of the project takes place in the swimming pool in Laugardalur where guests can bathe in tea. The teapots at Laugardalur pool will be open on Saturday 29th of March from 13.00 – 15.00.AttikattiTeaser_photo_JuliaSchygulla1 AttikattiTeaser_photo_JuliaSchygulla2

The exhibition runs until March 20th, but will then be moved to the lower floor of Spark Design Space and reopened during the DesighMarch, 25th – 30th of March. Visitors can enjoy various tea products such as tea-soda or tea chocolate at the teahouse or buy a little tea soap for a friend. For additional information, see here.
