KOHCHOSAI KOSUGA - Bamboo Oval Tray
The Oval Trays of the Plateau collection are a collection of bathroom and living room accessories inspired by Japanese landscapes, designed by the Danish studio OEO in collaboration with the traditional craft techniques of Kohchosai Kosuga.
The design plays with the height and height differences to create a strong and interesting design language to create, but also to show and to function. The design is inspired by bamboo, but also by the possibilities of high-tech manufacturing.
The founder of KOCHOUSAI, Kocho Ueda, worked as the official painter for the 11th Tokugawa feudal lord of the Kishu province. After being given the right to a surname and to bear arms, he was given the family crest of kageaoi design (hollyhocks). His paintings are now part of the collections of Nishihongan-ji temple and Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts. In honor of the founder's talent for the arts, the company "Kohchosai Kosuga" was founded.
