Emphasizing the visual aesthetics of modern teashops, Teatime includes visual studies of more than forty establishments in Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Asia, particularly China.
Editor Zender specializes in interior design for commercial spaces, particularly in the tea industry. His selection of shops emphasizes those in which interior design aligns with the shop’s branding while mixing in modern materials and aesthetics. He also favors those that are successful in mixing distinctive products with unique space experiences and providing excellent customer-focused interior designs. While some are decidedly futuristic in their emphasis on chrome and white plastics, others hew more toward naturalistic atmospheres, with warm, smooth wood tones and polished stone.
This book is a companion to Bakery Design, and like it, offers an abundance of interior design ideas that can easily be applied beyond teashops to cafés, fast-casual, and even fine dining restaurants.
