Bringing together eight creators to propose a new generation of tea culture
Crossing boundaries is the greatest change and matchmaking opportunity that Tea Party has brought to the industry. With the input of many different professional fields, new elements can be inspired and possibilities for the future can be created. Through cross-boundary collaboration, existing models and impressions can usually be broken. As a result of crossing boundaries, tea culture, as traditional as it might seem, can become both classical and improvised. but also suitable to the organizations’ images. On the Calligraphy Greenway in front of the National Museum of Natural Science, dinosaurs of all sizes have already become part of the collective memory of Taichung citizens. Iron casting is an important core business of CMP. We hope to continue this memory and, by combining the iron casting strength of CMP, to create an interesting and touching art piece of public furniture. In the future, we look forward to this work merging into the life memories of Taichung citizens and further becoming a key landmark.
Tea Party is also a brilliant experiment conducted by different interesting teams, including those with specialties in visual design, product design, furniture design, fabric design, fashion design, music design, and dance performance. This is an integrated creation with a high level of difficulty. Using a cross-boundary collaboration approach, we attempt to bring the Chinese tea culture to another level of exquisiteness.
“After watching this, my life has acquired a taste of happiness!” said an Italian artist. Possessing a sense of expectation yet to be understood, they toured Europe, North America, China and Taiwan and collected the praise of audiences in over 50 performances. In 2014, the team was even invited to France, where they impressed meticulous taste buds from Europe and the USA. Connoisseur Hsieh Chung-Tao also endorsed the efforts of the team. The team’s outstanding achievement has received recognition from many international and local design awards, including a gold medal from “Design for Asia” in 2013 and the German “iF Communication Design Award” in 2014.
