oji & design

http://www.o-ji.jp/works/files/FUTAGAMI2011_4.jpg

the oji & design site has a lovely selection of products, ranging from kitchen and tabletop items, to bags and pouches to furniture. as well as a lot of well made wooden things there are a lot of other materials used, which combine really well; the octagonal chopping board with a cast brass stand (above) look particularly nice together.

there are a lot of nice designs on the site, but below are some of my favourites: brass utensil holders, brass brackets, octagonal plates and trays, notebook pouches, more octagonal chopping boards, wooden butter dishes, and (perhaps the odd one out) leather corner protectors.
