The Exceptional Tea Lounge Experience
by Dilmah is the first tea lounge in Europe
at a ski resort. A carefully designed spot
at more than 2,000 meters of altitude. It’s

merged with warm materials such as copper

environments. Its layout defines use and
flexibility of space and lighting to create the
complement to that atmosphere that is being
