Kouki set black


Kouki is a project that reveals Oki Sato’s emotional and intellectual interpretation of the ritual of lighting a candle. Kouki (Kou -meaning light in Japanese- and Ki – sheen/shine) is a marble tray that gathers a series of elements gravitating around the main protagonist, the candle. The candle is contained in a marble cylinder which presents a central cut to facilitate its lighting. Other precious elements complete the set: a match holder, a wick trimmer, a container for used matches and a snuffer to extinguish the flame. All items are placed in a specific position and have their own purpose. The concept behind Kouki relates to the substantial purity of things with a focus on removing, rather than adding, coherently reaffirming Nendo’s distinctive approach. Kouki set black is made in Marquinia marble, with accessories in hand-brushed brass.
