The ‘Kanji collection is a celebration of the beautiful graphic nature of formed iron rod. Each piece was designed to serve a useful function in the home, while bringing the elegance and purity of Japanese aesthetics to any interior setting. The experienced craftsmen at Sugiyama Seisakusho begin with simple rods and plates of iron, and slowly coax them by hand into the unique pieces of the collection. Their attention to detail brings the material to life in these useful and elegant objects.
