Design by Oji Masanori
Born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1974.  After working in an architect office and a graphic design office, he became a handicraft designer. His works expand from designing a variety of Japanese handicraft products, making graphic designs of ongoing works to developing the branding of his product families in an integrated manner. He designs based on the upbringing of a handicraft item with an eye in the destiny of that particular product.

He handles the product design and the development of the “Futagami” brand (2009-). He also co-organizes a series of exhibitions of Japanese handicraft and products of medium-scale production, called “TE TE TE Traders’ Expo” (2012 -). 

In 2015, he became the juror of the Takaoka Craft Competition. In 2016, he became the chief juror.


Futugami
Founded in 1897, the origins of Futagami were rooted in making brass artefacts in the Buddhist tradition.

The company has since developed a very successful homeware product brand, but has maintained its focus on producing quality, handcrafted furnishings that last generations.

Their brass alloy is famous in Japan for gradually developing a rich patina over the course of many years due to the oxidisation process.
