Roughness and delicacy are the expressive elements of CERAMIC LAB. Developed by working closely with craftsmen in traditional pottery villages of Japan, it is a fresh interpretation of Japanese tableware for the modern lifestyle. Knowledge and skills were inherited to develop the product —from the proportion of clay and glaze, to the sensitive transformations while firing that depend on temperature and humidity. Featuring the warm textures of clay, the humble designs give comfort to the user.
UNITEA integrates harmoniously into any scene. The glass jugs and cups showcase the beauty of teas inside, letting you observe tea leaves as they bloom. While made of glass, the large arched design of the handle lets you grip firmly and comfortably. There are teapots with varying strainers, including one touch teapot with strainer integrated into the lid. Items combine various materials, including heat-resistant glass, stainless steel, and plastic.
AQUA CULTURE VASE is designed to celebrate the beauty of leaves growing and roots extending in the water. It is composed of 2 parts, the plate and the vase, which make taking care of plants easy. The plate supports the growing leaves such as herbs. It is also perfectly shaped for bulbs like hyacinth and seeds like avocado. You can choose to enjoy it as a flower vase without the plate. Get inspired to start a life with plants.
RIPPLE brings a tranquil feel like small waves in the water. The pieces translate the suppleness of the original form, which was made by a craftsman on the potter’s wheel. The glazes have a beautiful transparency and show delicate expression on each piece. The rim of the mugs and bowls feel soft on the mouth, and the handles are designed to fit comfortably in your hands.
