In collaboration with experts in the field of traditional crafts, a series of pieces to
create a dining space for everyone to gather are devised and produced.
The following three craft works have been created.
“Stackable wine glasses: the drama begins when you untie the string.”
This stackable wine glass is created to have both convenience and Japanese
culture on your table at the same time with the technique of porcelain. Wine
glasses are one of the most difficult things to store. They are thin, delicate and
fragile. We have designed a wine glass that can be easily carried indoors or
outdoors and is easy to be stored.
“A wine cooler carved out of stone by a stone expert with a keen eye for detail and a skill for stone processing.”
Let us have a small Japanese garden in the middle of the table.
It can be used as a cooler to chill wine, as a vase to add a seasonal touch to the
table, or as a lantern to give gentle light to the dining space.
“A speaker with a beautiful high-pitched sound made from Sahari Orin”
We have created a speaker with a high-pitched sound by making use of the
characteristics of Sahari and the shape of Orin. (“Sahari” means copper-based
alloys of tin and lead, “Orin” is a Buddhist instrument shaped like a bowl which
makes a bell-like sound when struck with a stick.) The speaker has a clear treble
and a stereophonic sound.
