Scholten & Baijings has installed a tea party with a modern twist in London department store Fortnum & Mason, made up of more than 80 objects designed by the Dutch duo.
The Time for Tea installation comprises furniture designed by the studio and accessories and teaware, spread across a series of small, circular tables. Scholten & Baijings created the installation for this year’s London Design Festival.
Among the products created by the studio is an Ottoman daybed designed for Italian brand Moroso, the duo’s Colour Wood polygonal tables for Karimoku New Standard and the 13Eighty plastic moulded chair designed for Hay.
Scholten & Baijings wanted to create a new take on the traditional tea ceremony for the installation and worked to bring together elements of the tea rituals found in England and Japan.
