rassen Chopsticks by by|n

For 400 years the town of Obama has been on the map as a centre for the manufacture of chopsticks. (Since 2008 it has also been on the map for sharing a name with a US President...) The town’s original claim to fame is based on the deep tradition of forestry and lacquer work in its region, and its application in producing the some of the country’s finest chopsticks

These ‘rassen’ chopsticks are a unique departure, and a collaboration between Obama maker Hashikura Matsukan, and the Tokyo design studio Nendo. Showing typical design flair in their detachable single unit form, rassen are part of the by|n series of joint works between Nendo and regional artisans. In this case the maker’s traditional knowledge was applied to plastic, and the use of advanced multi-axis machinery to achieve the spiral effect. 
 

Made in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture.
