Wooden Tableware Inspired by the Shape of Eggshells

The design was based on the image of a breakfast set, with a view to its usability in everyday life.
Takahashi Kougei, a craftsman, has a high level of skill in thin wood carving, which is one of his specialties.
Designer Rina Ono, who created the "smooth round shape" to take advantage of this technique, used the shape of an egg, often used for breakfast, as a motif.



Cara Plate

The grain of the wood is not too strong and the design is simple, so it works well with other patterned tableware. Glass and ceramic plates are heavy, so moving them in and out of the capboard is a tough and tiring operation, but the Japanese linden wood that the Cara series is made of is surprisingly lightweight.

The 25 cm Plate is perfect for serving a single dish. The rim is beautifully raised and the flat bottom is wide, so you can place a small plate on top or enjoy serving a variety of side dishes one at a time. It also looks great when serving a salad for two or three people.

Cara Dish 24cm


The 18 cm Dish is suitable for use as a salad plate or as a serving dish for steamed dishes. It is also beautiful to place sliced fruit on.

Cara Bowl

Cara Bowl has the deepest shape compared to Cara Plate and Cara Dish.
Wooden bowls have low thermal conductivity, so they can be held in the hand even when they contain hot food. The bowl is useful for soup or porridge in your home. Because they are light, they are also convenient for children's tableware.

Takahashi Kougei (Woodworker Hidetoshi Takahashi)

Takahashi Kougei produces wheel-thrown wooden tableware in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan. He makes use of the original color and grain of the wood as it is, and is conscious of the usability of wood in everyday life. He stands at the wheel with Japanese product designers Masanori Ohji and Rina Ono, and the three of them create products while checking the feel of the wheel.

Takahashi buys the trees while they are still planted in the mountains, cuts them down, and lets them rest for several years to allow warping and shrinkage to settle before he begins working with them. He selects the best parts of each piece and carefully finishes them by hand, a truly artisanal process.
