MINAX Ar­chi­tects has de­signed ONE Tea­house, in Shang­hai, China. It is de­signed us­ing 999 wooden sticks. The rec­tan­gu­lar room has long wooden ta­ble with pouffes that forms the seat­ing area. From ground to ceil­ing it is de­signed with help of wooden sticks that are cut out of an oval shape, with each pieces of wooden hav­ing var­i­ous an­gle and length. With a grad­ual tran­si­tion the sticks trans­form the rec­tan­gu­lar room into an oval shape room. The room is well-lit by a cir­cu­lar win­dow at the end. As the sun­light re­flects from the vivid cut sur­faces of the sticks it gives a rhyth­mic play of var­ied sizes and cir­cles.
