Oji Masanori is a Japanese designer with a special interest in the objects of everyday life—his design process involves careful consideration of the lives of its users and the manufacturing process by which it’s created. Professionally trained in calligraphy and architecture, he founded his studio in 2004 after working for several years as an architect and graphic designer. His work is strongly influenced by Japan’s rich history of craft while looking to the future of industry.

Futagami is one of the oldest Japanese brass foundries, located in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, a place known for its history of brassworks. Founded in 1897, Futagami gained a reputation for the manufacture of fittings for temples in the Buddhist tradition. The company has since developed a contemporary line of homewares, working with the same commitment to quality and technique they have for generations.
