Introducing "U," (U comma), a minimalist candy case by Japanese designer Atsushi Shindo and casting manufacturer SANOSAMA. Made entirely from brass, the lollipop shaped case was created thanks to a highly advanced technology inspired by the traditional buddhist altar fitting production process. U,'s concept, "every small moment counts", is at the core of its manufacturing process.
This new candy case is the first product launched under the theme of "put a little surprise in your pocket" which will see U, launch a series of palm-sized products with a playful design. The brand seeks to move past the need for practicality by offering its customers tools that promote a deeper communication among people and spark little surprises and inspirations through their unexpected appearance and subtle design. With its lovely shape and sparkle and available in four colours, the candy case brings a little surprise every time it's opened. You can even put a small piece of jewellery inside and always have in your pocket a cute little surprise.
