Horiguchi Kiriko x Snow Peak

A series of lantan shades produced in collaboration with Snow Peak, one of the most established and globally popular Japanese outdoor brands. The beautiful and highly contrasting shadows projected on a tent or a tarpaulin are not casted from Edo Kiriko’s traditional patterns such as fish, egg or hemp, but instead a set of modern and minimal cuts. Although the focus here was on authentic traditional craftsmanship, Toru also successfully removed any excessive feelings of the old fashioned, creating a contemporary result.
