Obon is a collection of three tables inspired by an ancient, earthy, irregular material: terra-cotta.
With its origins lost in the mists of time, terracotta is at the base of millenary archaeological finds all over the world. These precious discoveries are evidence of our timeless creativity and desire to leave a sign, admire and ritualize.
Each Obon Table is handcrafted and unique. The Obon tables, therefore, may vary slightly in size and glaze finish.
