HOME AND KITCHEN
The latest appliances and furniture for your home
Given their clean, simple design, works by Japanese porcelain maker Yumiko Iihoshi tread a fine line between artisanal and functional. In her Un Jour collection, featuring cups, mugs, bowls and plates for everyday use, she seems to encourages her users to walk the slow lane, dreamily harking back to days gone past, while holding fast to the solid and real as a bulwark against the humdrum of daily life. Rainy gray, the newest colour in the collection joining others such as ivory and blue, evokes an even greater sense of calm. Like a piece of rock or slate you find on the seashore, each piece is cool and reassuring, finding its place easily in your dining room, whether set on timber, marble or even concrete.
