This month's Kikof

This month, we're focusing on perfecting the kitchen and dining room, kicking off with the aptly named Kikof, a covetable set of dishes and tableware. This beautiful ceramic collection is the result of the Mother Lake Products Project initiative, which pairs creators in Tokyo with artisans from the Lake Biwa region in Shiga Prefecture.

The octagonal shape of the entire series gives the plates, bowls, mug and pot a clean, modern form, and they come in subtle pastel tints with quaint names: Noon White, Morning Blue and Sunset Pink.
