Roly Wooden Cups
studio mute believes in excellence when designing ordinary items used in daily life.
When approached by Unomatudo, a well establised traditional lacquerware artisan business since 1930,to come up with a contemporary range for every day use, studio mute distilled the traditional concept of lacquerware and did away with the layering of lacquer (Urushi).
Once the items were expertly carved using the 'rokuro' electric turning wheel, a coat of food grade urethane is applied to protect and showcase beauty of the wood grain.
Roly is a range of cups which showcases the natural beauty and lightness of the sen wood in which they are made.
Materials: sen (castor aralia) with food grade urethane coating
Designed by studio mute.
Dimension: 7.8 x 7.8 x h 8cm
