The long-established foundry Futagami in Takaoka has collaborated with Japanese designer Masanori Oji since 2009 to create contemporary brass products using traditional techniques. The minimal shapes pertained to astronomy with the gleam of brass are aesthetically gorgeous and functional at the same time.
This unique shaped trivet named “Hoshi” which means “star” keeps tables safe from hot pots and kettles.
