“Beyond the approach and conception of contemporary collections”

Futagami

“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

“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”.

黄酮一直被使用在诸如建筑金属配件,船和家具等各个领域,具有耐腐蚀性和柔韧性。它做为一个历久悠久的艺术和手工艺品或佛具设备材料都因为它拥有一个优雅柔和的光泽纹理。

黄酮制品会因为许多年的氧化,逐渐改变表面的颜色,使用的时间越长,他们的变化就越发的丰富和微妙,浑然的融入人和环境之中。

“我为生活而设计”

“我会把自己的身心都完全融入到创作中,每一天用心感受日常生活中那些连接温馨、柔软、舒适的小细节。我不仅仅是设计产品本身,更用心钻研包装、图案的设计,在整个产品是如何诞生的过程中,始终不停的思考并感受。”
