This month we look at quintessentially Japanese objects re-invented as modern-retro designs.

Dolled up drinking vessels

The Kokeshi Sake Bottle brings together three traditional Japanese objects — the tokkuri (sake bottle), sakazuki (drinking cups) and the kokeshi doll. Designed by Kenichiro Oomori, whose experience includes finding new ways to manipulate metal and wood crafts, this unusual glassware set is produced by Hirota Glass, one of Tokyo's oldest glass manufacturers.
