The Tea Lounge is conceived and designed like a nomadic camp: loose furniture is arranged in groups over individual rugs, some are placed under a stainless canopy symbol of the tent. Each group of seating is placed around the central tea altar acting as a fire place where tea, hospitality and comfort is provided to all guests and visitors. The Tea Lounge is a physical and conceptual representation of the ancient Silk Road for the modern travelers, a meeting place of food, cultures and ideas merging into a botanical palette of browns and greens representing various stages of tea production.

At Newark Liberty International Airport, previously underutilized corridors containing moving walkways were re-purposed to feature expansive food and beverage offerings in fresh "oases." Each oasis has a different restaurant or bar and is approximately three meters wide by forty-six meters long.
