Designed in collaboration with Tohachiya, an eminent Urushi lacquerware company based in Wajima Japan.


A combination of the sake pourer, sake cups and a tray was used. The shape and design of these items, typically used in Japanese culture, was kept to a minimal with subtle shapes introduced. With the treatment of urushi and addition of ground mother-of-pearl , the idea of ‘layering’ and ‘gradation’ was explored, both from a textural and colour perspective. 

The final product produces a soft glow with a subtle sheen that will gradually become lighter over time.
