The design that inspired this piece was meticulously crafted in Kyoto of lightweight bamboo. We were quite taken with its pleasing line and the way it sits in the hand. So we had it copied in ebony wood and then, as a tribute, we had it cast in bronze. We covet them all, and so might you.
These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
