Teien is a journey with the imagination to a clean and spontaneous place, to a forest full of ancient bamboos where flowers grow at without fear of being cut, where the silence is only broken by the rustle of the leaves eager for wind.

Teien is geometric and asymmetric, relaxed and sophisticated, resilient and avant-garde. If Teien had a smell, it would be that of rain before it falls.
