Manitoga / The Russel Wright Design Center is thrilled to extend the Tea House by designers Yoshihiro Sergel & Diana Mangaser in the landscape into 2022. Set upon quarry-stone footings among the ferns and grasses of Mary’s Meadow, the Tea House exquisitely expresses the integration of design and nature at Manitoga while evoking Russel Wright’s great affinity with Japan. Designers Yoshihiro Sergel and Diana Mangaser conceived and hand-crafted the Tea House from wood, paper and string as a space for contemplation and ritual, a stage for poetry and music, and as an open framework for the seasonal changes of nature as spring turns to fall and becomes winter at Manitoga.

This program is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program with public funds from Putnam County, and from the Sara Little Turnbull Foundation and New York State Council on the Arts.
