Brass Tape Dispenser (small)

$215.00

Born from molten brass, fire and earth

A collaboration between the 120-year old brass foundry Futagami and product designer Masanori Oji has resulted in this beautiful yet utilitarian tape dispenser.

Handmade from solid brass, the tape dispenser is heavy enough that it won't budge when you pull a piece of tape. It's also designed so that you can easily lift it up with one hand to relocate it.

Brass gradually changes color over the years due to oxidization. The longer these are used the richer and subtler they become.

About

Futagami is a brass foundry founded in the city of Takaoka (Toyama Pref) in 1897. Brass has long been used for industrial purposes, favored for its corrosion resistance and moldability. But in collaboration with product designer Oji Masanori, the company has successfully reinvented the material for home use.

Futagami's products will last a lifetime and will slowly change color over time, developing a rich patina. See the Futagami Collection.
