TY Square, Glazed White, 200 / 32 eur
Designed by Teruhiro Yanagihara for 1616/arita japan

The collection is designed as a series of items without predetermined functions, and the rectangular and round shapes in either matt or shiny finishes offer endless styling possibilities. The Palace plate is the centrepiece of the collection that adds a storytelling accent to the overall stringent expression.
