Kaneko Kohyo’s Giyaman coffee cups and matching saucers make a ritual of coffee breaks. Its chrysanthemum-shaped details reference the flower that blooms prominently across Japanese art and design. The brown ‘urushi’ lacquer has a glass-like appearance that draws the eye from tables and breakfast trays.
