Seasons

When I think of shapes I usually think of asymmetrical forms. Japanese designer, Nao Tamura was inspired by the irregular shape of a green leaf to create Seasons, a serving container with a pleasant feeling of spontaneity.

Tamura’s strongly Japanese-inspired work reminds us that there is a Japanese way of going about things.

With Seasons, a serving container made of silicone, she won the Salone Satellite Award at the Salone Internationale del Mobile 2010. Seasons is lightweight, flexible and rolls up like an organic leaf. It’s about harmony.

Even the most mundane thing can become a happy shape.
