“Rikyu and Souan”

Nanaha Co., Ltd. is a company that sends “new Japanese forms” to the world from the perspective of “Matcha”.
We offer high-quality matcha with a menu that is modernly arranged, such as matcha latte,
The space required in the store is not “Japanese style” but “modern tea room”.
In the words of the owner, it is an expression of the desire to create a “store where you can enjoy the traditional tea culture of Japan through a modern interpretation.”

Sen no Rikyu, who completed Wabicha, his disciple Furuta Oribe, and his disciple Kobori Enshu. Expressing the characteristics of each, it was Sen no Rikyu that wasted to the utmost limit, and Furuda Oribe sought unbalance (the spirit of Kabuki), and added sophisticated elegance (clean rust) to it. It is said that Kobori Enshu.

In Toyosaki Town, Okinawa, if you can feel the history of the tea room by arranging the Rikyu four tatami mats of the Juraku mansion that is the tea room of Rikyu and the tea room of the Enshu tea room of Enshu, you can feel the history of the tea room I thought that it would be possible to have an experience that goes beyond time.

I tried to create a space that was free from the concept of time by painting the floor, the wall, and the ceiling with mortar, and by applying a white line drawing on it to mix the actual thing with the illustration to create “imaginary” and “real”.

I hope this shop will trigger a tea ceremony for young people.




To express the tea room of Toshihisa and Kobori Enshu realistically
The size of the room and the position of the opening are reproduced.
(There is no tea room in Rikyu, but I am looking into it from the literature.)

With simple Tokuhisa and Tokuhisa who are the counterpart,
The height of the openings that people enter and leave may differ.

When expressing with illustrations,
We also verify how to draw straight lines, thick lines, thin lines, etc.
