‘mole chaa’ is a chinese dome teahouse crammed into a traditional business community and a social space that attracts trendy young people in the city of foshan. using only brass, aluminum, and concrete, infinity nide built a giant egg in the space without changing the original walls.

the walls in gradient red are circular and oblique which creates a sense of security and separates the social area and the tea-making one. the circular thor-shaped concrete chairs draw a closer distance between people sitting around.

infinity nide-designed four-meter long brass lighting tubes sublimate the space into a giant art installation and lead people to the outdoor social space across the giant egg as they are set interlaced from the top. the white logo on the wall elaborates the artistic atmosphere maintained in the space.
