TOKYO ICON

The Tokyo Icon series is a regional design collaboration between traditional makers in Arita, and contemporary designers based in Tokyo.

The highlights of Tokyo’s culture, art, and food have been captured in a traditional art form that is more than 400 years old. The plates are hand-crafted ultra-durable Arita porcelain, and are perfect for daily use as a side plate, or for serving small dishes or desserts.

MEET THE BRAND

Kihara

Kihara is a Japanese porcelain producer founded in 1955 in Arita – a town in southern Japan with a 400-year history of producing ceramics from the white kaolin clay of the region. The porcelain is known for being especially hard wearing, as the clay is made from the crushed natural stone of the region. Kihara works with local craftsmen in Arita, combining 400-year old traditional techniques with new technologies to produce porcelain.

In addition to their work in Arita, Kihara also work with local artisans in the historic town of Hasami in the Nagasaki Prefecture. Hasami has an equally long history of producing porcelain, and is known for natural lightweight earthenware with smooth lines and textures.

As well as designing and producing their own collections, Kihara have produced ceramics alongside a number of renowned designers, including Atelier Bingo (France), Edwin Low (Singapore), Mjolk (Canada), Monocle (UK), Papier Tigre (Japan), & Tony Lai (Australia). They opened their flagship store in Arita in 2016, closely followed by another store in Tokyo in 2017. They showcase their ceramics in these two locations, as well as in Europe through a number of partners including Godshot studio.
