developed as part of the collaboration between danish design company OEO and ‘japan handmade‘, the collection features an evolution of traditionally crafted objects – securing the future generation of japanese craftsmanship.

 

presented at the 2013 maison et objet, artisan group kanaami-tsuji featured their metal-knitted kitchen utensils, alongside a library chair designed by danish architect børge mogensen. using techniques dating back over 1000 years ago, the series of objects utilize hand-weaves – such as kiku-dashi (chrysanthemum pattern) and kikko-ami (tortoise shell netting) that are traditionally used for tofu servers and tea strainers, to create poetic and graphically decorative patterns for functional houseware.
