Minamo Water Surface Plates


Water that you'll want to spill on the table

Minamo is a metal plate that captures the glittering surface of water using a combination of craftsmanship and technology. Although it's considered highly difficult to replicate the complex yet gentle curves, a team of designers managed to pull it off using a combination of computer simulation, digital molds utilizing 3D modeling tools, and metal stamping techniques from a small factory.

Minamo works with any cuisine and adds a magical atmosphere to any table. The word minamo comes the ancient reading of 水面, meaning water surface in Japanese.
