The Gourmet Tea Lounge and Shop in Sao Paulo, Brazil is the latest collaboration between the brand and architect Alan Chu. The new shop and lounge is located in a previously unoccupied space that Chu overhauled to create a bright and minimalist café space that is both laid back and warm.

The Gourmet Tea Lounge space is long and rectangular, which Chu has made the most of with bright white brick walls and natural lighting that opens up the lounge and makes it appear larger, as well as having added long communal tables. The white décor also gives the brand's colorful merchandise the backdrop it deserves.

The colorful shop is a great example of even a small space being turned into a intimate retail experience that stays true to the brand.
