Ifuji Hand-Carved Maple Wood Cutlery Carrier


Masashi Ifuji works from his studio in Matsumoto, Japan, creating objects with a form-meets-function philosophy. For this maple wood cutlery carrier, he utilises the templates and techniques used by 18th-century American Shaker communities. This style was once used for eggs and sewing thread, with the loop handle designed for easy transportation to and from the market. Today, it can be used for anything and everything – display purposes included.

Masashi Ifuji designs and makes elegant tableware in Nagano, Japan, placing emphasis on form and function. Traditional Japanese techniques such as sawmilling and plant-dyeing are used to create dining pieces, while natural materials including glass-based paint, vegetable oil, and even old objects, are essential to create functional shapes and an earthy appearance. Look out for the Italian maple-dyed trays.
