Launched in 2014, the S/N series blends minimalist design with tradition in practical objects that bring together style and function. Designed by Taku Shinomoto, all S/N products are crafted by renowned company Nousaku, in the historical city of Takaoka, Japan. This area has a long tradition in metalworking, with manufacturing techniques dating back to the 1600s. Master craftsmen forge each S/N object by hand, using the Tokugawa-era metalworking style to craft the products to perfection. The S/N collection includes a wide range of brass items, from paperweights and bookends to incense holders and pen trays.
