From November 8–10 in KINTO's Tokyo showroom, a private exhibition was held to present the new collection for spring and summer 2018. New items include “DESK TUMBLER” with the concept “for workers seeking and creating new value”. The new size 500ml was introduced to popular “TRAVEL TUMBLER”, and the new color black with matt texured finish was introduced to “OCT” coffeeware. Tableware collection “NEST” from 2007 was reintroduced with new items—2 mugs and a plate, in matt texture and calm tones. For “ATELIER TETE” collection, new color pink beige joined. Other new items include the tableware collection “NORI”, water carafe “OVA”, “CAST” double wall glasses suited for alcoholic drinks, and “AQUA CULTURE VASE” also introduced new color grey. Other collections suited to spring and summer dining scene also gathered attention.
We organized the coffee tasting event for visitors to experience using KINTO products. We invited Mr Yamamoto from Single O Japan as the guest roaster to serve specialty coffee using “OCT” coffeeware. We have also organized single origin tea leaves to be brewed and served with the teaware “LEAVES TO TEA”. Two kinds of tea was served — sencha green tea from a tea farm in Nagasaki prefecture, the area where the “LEAVES TO TEA” teaware is made, and ceylon tea from Sri Lanka sourced by the tea specialty shop TEAPOND. We were happy to see visitors enjoy tasting coffee and tea using KINTO items.
Please look forward to the new products which are scheduled to become available from mid-December, 2017 in Japan.
