Taking cues from the meaning of 'kobo' or ray, this coaster radiates beauty in its design and construction. The raised ray pattern collects condensation from a glass to keep the surface below clean and dry. The coaster has a nice height and weight and features a rubber footing, giving it substantial presence without slipping or damaging a table. As with all Futagami brass designs, this piece develops a handsome patina over time.

Beyond a coaster it makes for a delightful improv candle stand for our Pine Cone or Hohepa Egg candles.

DETAILS

⋄ Made in Japan - Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture 
⋄ Solid Brass / Rubber Feet
⋄ 'IHADA' casting – a crude surface finish
⋄ ØxH: 100 x 8 mm
⋄ 270g (Substantially weighty)


The brass gradually changes its colour over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
This patina can also be acquired by soaking in vinegar for a few hours or overnight and conversely polished back with Brasso.

Design by Oji Masanori 大治将典
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.
