japanese studio daisuke motogi has created a collection of accessories called ‘bunkai pierce’ and ‘sakkaku pierce’ that playfully flirt with color, pattern and texture for massitem. the brightly colored acrylic discs make up a set of earrings that sway as the user wears them, as the discs meeting points are broken, a rainbow of hues reveal themselves. other varieties include the gingham and stripe style which play on the art of optical illusion.

  • there’s nothing more frustrating than looking at products that are awesome and having no way of finding out how to purchase them… 🙁

  • You can find them here, but I’m afraid is a japanese website, so I am not sure if they send to the rest of the world. http://toumei.asia/?s=mass+item
