A cutlery rest made in Oji’s signature sand-cast brass, a process perfected by Futagami, a brass foundry in the city of Takaoka, on the coast of Japan’s Honshu Island. Its uniquely textured surface will oxidize, developing a rich patina with age. 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.
