Designed around the philosophy of “the beauty of a pause or a blank space between words”, Yohaku is a set of hand-carved and turned wood utensils that celebrate the beauty of simple and geometric shapes. Each piece is unique due to its natural timber grain and the imperfections of the carving process. Made for modern individuals in a fast paced life, seeking for a moment to slow down, these pieces are hand carved and turned, then waxed with a home made coconut and bees wax seal.
