Premium tea brand Da.U.De recently opened a storefront called Sweetea's that boasts a colorful geometric interior. Designed to encourage more tea drinkers to try out the brand's products, the store boasts a pop-out sitting area for consumers to enjoy their tea inside the shop.

The Sweetea's storefront was designed by architect Íris Cantante, who worked with Da.U.De founder Renée Sebastian to create the perfect space for tea lovers. The storefront builds on Sebastian's Filipino heritage with colorful designs and bold, geometric elements. In order to accommodate a range of different experiences, the front counters are fitted with wooden elements that can be pulled out to provide additional chairs and tables. If the store is busy, these wooden inserts can be tucked back under the counter to give customers more room to browse.
