“SUMI NOTOKI” by Nikko, the Western-style dinnerware manufacturer, won the first place in the License Collaboration category of the international competition “Tableware International Award of Excellence 2018”. Among 219 entries for 16 categories from over 100 companies around the world, Nikko was the only Japanese company that received the award.
“SUMI NO TOKI” is a new collection of dinnerware combining Japanese and Western beauty, designed by Hiroko Koshino.
Created based on the Sumi ink work by Hiroko Koshino, it expresses Japanese sense of “space” in the blank space, using the energy and sharpness of the original work as well as the drip and flow of Sumi ink and paints.
The jury commented that the collection “appeals to modern consumers with its perfect shape and drawings by highly technical transfer paper. It is the result of the perfect collaboration between Nikko and Hiroko Koshino. Artistic, variable drawings will add a special touch to the dining scene and bring art and enjoyment to the modern-day home”.
“SUMI NO TOKI” series are available on Nikko’s online shop.
