“Beyond the approach and conception of contemporary collections”
“Futagami,” a brass foundry founded in the city of Takaoka, Toyama Pref., Japan in 1897 launched a brass livingware brand named “FUTAGAMI.”
Brass has long been used in various fields such as metal fittings for architecture, ships, and furniture as it has corrosion resistance property and moderate workability.
It has a long history as a material for arts and crafts or Buddhist altar equipment as its texture is gentle with an elegant luster.
Brass products gradually change their color over the course of many years due to oxidization. The longer they are used, the richer and subtler they become, dissolving into the human heart and the environment.
“I design living products.”
“I have dedicated myself in creating them while considering a design which may connect various things gently and comfortably everyday. I have designed not only a product itself but also its package and graphics while considering overall process of how a product is born.”
“Futagami”在 1987 年日本高冈市，富山县曾经是以制造传统黄铜佛器为主，日后推出黄酮生活用品品牌”FUTAGAMI”.
