  • THE Lunch Box
    The inconspicuous bento box may encapsulate two diverging facets from Japan: sporting hectic, excessive colours and textures, just like the crowded streets of Shibuya; or absolute clean lines and reductionism, like the renowned Japanese architecture.

  • Tumble Vase
    Why should home wares be limited to the flat bi-dimensionality of table tops?
