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.

T-lab polepole animal Seal

size : 3.2 / 7.3 / 5.5H (cm)

These whimsical wooden animals from T-Lab Japan have been loved and collected in Japan for over 10 years and have finally made it to Australia!


These whimsical wooden animals from T-Lab Japan have been loved and collected in Japan for over 10 years and have finally made it to Australia!

"Pole pole"(poh-leh poh-leh) means slowly, slowly in Swahili and describes how these animals are created. Each animal is hand carved and filed from Albizia soft wood and then hand-painted with no varnish. Due to their handcrafted nature, each pole pole animal is slightly different.

The 'Albizia' tree is one of the quickest growing tropical trees.  These trees are sustainable because of their rapid growth.

T-Lab combats deforestation by replanting every tree to repay the earth.

Each animal is carefully hand-carved from a light white wood and hand-painted by expert craftsmen. These gorgeous animals are made by the artisans of a dedicated workshop in the village of Tirabo, Bali in Indonesia.

The feel of the smoothly sanded wood and the sweetly painted expressions will bring a smile to your face and a sense of warmth to your home!

Collect several and create your own personal menagerie at home or line them up on your desk at work!
