Item Description

Caret Down Primary

The Katto Whisky Glass set celebrates the grandeur of Japanese whisky-distilling terrains through a series of dynamic fractal patterns that map topography. Reimagining the ancient traditions of Japanese glass craftsmanship, Ministry of Design (MOD)'s design eschews existing pattern templates, symmetry and balance for a dynamic freeform approach.

Foregoing intricate kaleidoscopic web of symmetric patterns and instead deconstructing this outcome, Katto depicts 3D topographies inspired by the mountain terrains of the famed Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan's Southern Alps - Whisky territory and home to numerous world-renowned distilleries. The goal was to celebrate contemporary design interventions whilst celebrating time honoured craft.

Katto was designed by Ministry of Design, and produced by Kimoto Glass.

Glass size: Ø80mm, H90mm
Each pair of Katto glasses is packaged in a Paulownia wood box.

*Sold as a pair
