Motarasu YOKO teapot
Red YOKO teapot created in spirit of the ancient Urushi Nipponico (lacquered colour)
YOKO is a distinctive stylish table collection inspired by the designer couple Stilleben’s following their first trip to Japan. The name Yoko is a Japanese females name. The humble yet unique sculptural forms challenge the porcelain material: strong yet delicate. Perfect for daily use or exciting guests.
“IN THIS COLLECTION THE COLOUR RED IS INSPIRED BY THE ANCIENT URUSHI NIPPONICO (LACQUERED COLOR), WHILE THE NAVY-BLUE COLOUR RELATES TO THE TRADITION OF DECORATIONS OF PORCELAIN”
The YOKO teapot is the principal part of the collection. The cups and carafe add a ceremonial and traditional feel to the set. The enamelled-looking colours are inspired and worked according to the ancient Japanese tradition of urushi lacquer.
