FUTAGAMI Brass IHADA Stationery Tray Large

FUTAGAMI Brass IHADA Stationery Tray Large



Brass IHADA Stationery Tray Large designed by Masanori Oji and made by FUTAGAMI, Japan.

This gorgeous Brass IHADA Stationery Tray has an organic crude casting of brass and is designed to be used as a pen holder or money tray. The upper face of the tray is IHADA-finished, a crude casting surface. The tray gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.

They can also be used as a tray to pop your keys and sunglasses on when you arrive home at the front door, for your favourite jewelries or bibs and bobs next to the bed, as a tray in the bathroom, or even a serving tray for small canapés.

Dimensions: w210 x d87 x h13mm

Material:Roughly Cast Brass

Designed by Masanori Oji

FUTAGAMI was founded in 1897 and has a long history of making brass artifacts.

The techniques of making these brass artifacts were initially used to make Buddhist items for celebration and worship, and are now used to transform exquisitely designed home items into modern collectibles. Metals such as brass are subject to change their look with time, thus, bringing out their unique beauty.

Onami Tumbler Silky 110

Onami Tumbler Silky 110


Onami Tumbler 

Onami is a spinning metal maker who collaborates with designer YAMAZAKI Yoshiki to create authentic tumblers and rock glasses.

Spinning tool lines are made on these simple tumblers and rock glasses, which are created by using a metal spinning technique. Because the tumblers and rock glasses have spinning tool lines on their surface, it is not slippery to hold even when your hands are wet. Since they are made of stainless steel, there is little concern that they will break, and they are perfect to be used outdoors as well. The mouth of the tumbler has a large diameter, meaning it is easy to clean the inside of the tumbler.

Dimensions (mm):Silky Tumbler dia 92 x h 110mmL

Material:Stainless steel 18-8

Capacity: Tumbler 110/ 410ml (when filled to brim)

Onami's stainless steel "Silky" finish gives a unique gloss which is achieved by not polishing the product, reducing shininess, and giving the product a finish which enhances the beauty of the spinning tool lines.
