I interpret a folkcraft for modern sensitivity and bring about new sense of values. “KIKOF” which won the grand prix in the ADC prize that it was hosted by Tokyo art director zouk love of 2015. I introduce the spot of “Marushi-seito Co., Ltd.” producing it.
The work which showed one-day scenery of Lake Biwa
Design without a curve just like folding, assembled, such as “KIKOF “. “Marushi-seito co., Ltd.” to produce and designer KIGI,Uehara ,Watanabe won the Grand Prix of the ADC by the year 2015, in heavy work. Only from approximately 8000 pieces chosen in the Grand Prix, so cool.
Is pottery made from clay of rectilinear design, but feel strangely warm. It was made under the concept of “Lake Biwa is a large vessel,” without flashy colors, prepared 4-color tableware is none, light, friendly colors. So, showing the grey pink white blue morning, noon, evening and night.
The thought that put in KIKOF
Mother Lake Products Project spread the modern crafts in Shiga Prefecture that was originated in “KIKOF”. Round 1 is the “Marushi-seito co., Ltd. ‘ kitchen.
Lake Biwa seemed to put meanings such as Kiko who was “器-container” “湖-lake” and “Free” “Future” which developed from there freely from a big container in “F”.
670, 25 letters carved in the instrument, but it is showing the Biwa Lake area? Nice trendy design can feel closer to living in the Lake. More from this to see etc in many cafés and restaurants, look promising.
