Design based on ergonomics featuring remarkable usability

RIDGE / KRONOS

"How do we achieve a sincere user-centered design?" RIDGE and KRONOS started with this question. What led us to the answer was ergonomics, a study of designing products stress-free for users based on the understanding of human physics and psychology. "Pouring" from a pot into a cup. "Holding" a cup of drink. RIDGE and KRONOS seek to optimize these two movements. The items require little effort to use and are adored by everyone.

PRODUCT STORY

Ergonomically designed teaware

Ergonomics involves designing forms which are stress-free for the users based on the understanding of human body movement. RIDGE optimizes the action of "pouring" with a large arched handle that allows the teapot to maintain balance when held at an angle. You can pour tea with a light grip and just a little tilt.

Lines reminiscent of mountain ridges

As conveyed by its name, RIDGE incorporates design suggestive of mountain ridges. Part of the side surface is elevated and is accented by an angled line reaching from the spout. The pot and the cup side by side create a beautiful ridge landscape, turning your teatime into impeccable moments.

Ring designed for a firm grip

KRONOS glasses and cups emphasize the comfort of grip. Placing your fingers around the ring inspired by that of Saturn (KRONOS) lets you grip firmly and handle easily. The angle of the inner wall is made ideal for drinking. The thoughtful design details give gracefulness and ease to your movements.

Free floating look

Heat-resistant double wall structure is a distinct feature of KRONOS. The contents look as though they are floating in the air and the appearance emanates joy. KRONOS is highly suitable for hot and cold drinks as well as for serving soups and desserts. Functionality of the items is also considered; the wine glass is shaped to enhance aroma and the champagne glass to release fine bubbles.
