Step into the cozy embrace of smith&hsu's teahouse in Taipei, where Swiss-Danish designer Carsten Jorgensen has woven a tale of warmth and tranquility. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for blending the unexpected, Carsten has crafted an interior that beckons patrons to linger and indulge in the art of tea.

In this enchanting space, wooden furnishings mingle effortlessly with a concrete floor, creating a harmonious fusion of industrial chic and natural elegance. It's a testament to Carsten's skillful touch that these seemingly disparate elements seamlessly come together, enveloping guests in an atmosphere of serenity and refinement.

Drawing inspiration from the subtleties of a great tea, Carsten's choice of materials reflects an innate understanding of aesthetics and sensory delight. Cubed shelves adorned with jars of tea and second-hand books invite exploration, while suspended wooden display boxes add an element of whimsy to the space.

Venture upstairs to find a tranquil dining area, where the aroma of freshly brewed tea mingles with the laughter of guests. Downstairs, the tea shop awaits, offering a curated selection of loose teas from around the world and expertly crafted tea tools.

Carsten's design embodies the latest trends in interior aesthetics, seamlessly blending industrial and natural elements to create inviting and versatile spaces. It's a testament to his vision and creativity, and smith&hsu is honored to have him as part of our journey.
