QUENCH YOUR SOUL.

 τέχνη

...IS THE GREEK WORD FOR BOTH ART AND CRAFT. IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT IN THE MODERN WORLD, ONE’S “CRAFT” IS HIS OR HER LEARNED PROFESSION THAT GENERATES TANGIBLE PRODUCTS, WHILE “ART” IS DIFFERENTIATED AS A DIVERSE SET OF CREATIVE ACTIVITIES THAT DOES NOT NECESSARILY DO THE SAME. AT ZENCHAI WE BELIEVE THAT ANY WORTHY ENDEAVOR SHOULD EMBODY ART. CONSEQUENTLY, ART PERMEATES EVERYTHING THAT WE DO: IN OUR APPROACH TO TEA, THE DESIGN OF THE STORE, AND MOST NOTABLY THE COLLABORATIVE USE OF THE SPACE.

 

LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE LOWER EAST SIDE, ZENCHAI IS MINDFUL OF THE RICH ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL HISTORY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD. ESPECIALLY NOW WITH THE AREA UNDERGOING RAPID DEVELOPMENT, ZENCHAI WANTS TO PRESERVE THE ARTISTIC SPIRIT WHILE MAKING OUR OWN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY. FOR THIS REASON, ZENCHAI WELCOMES ARTISTS FROM ALL FIELDS TO COME PERFORM AND DISPLAY THEIR WORK. SO FAR THESE HAVE INCLUDED MUSICIANS, POETS, VISUAL ARTISTS, AND YOGIS - BUT THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

 

 

 

EMBRACE ART. QUENCH YOUR SOUL
