This pin holder design uses wood that has been worked by a lathe or wheel, creating items known as “hikimono” in Japanese.
Giving colorful pins the appearance of fruit turns the act of grabbing a pin into the joyful act of harvesting a berry.While a turner’s job is working wood, the softness of cork makes it difficult to do detailed work, and few have the expertise to do so.
This project is a collaboration between Toshifumi Momose, a traditional woodturner in Shizuoka JAPAN, and studio yumakano. These designs were developed to help solve the problems around traditional crafts through the concept of “everyday crafts”, extending the breadth of ordinary work, rather than struggling to develop something entirely new.
