No.10 is Japanese minimalism in a tray. Beautiful, simple and practical. Use it as a serving tray or set it directly on the table as a platter with little bowls of food. No.10 is inspired by the original Japanese banjyu trays, which are used to transport and serve the traditional confection manjū.

Material and care
  • Proper usage and maintenance

    Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.

  • Oak

    Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.

    Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannins that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior and accessories.

    The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.

    As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.

    Your new oak product is not suitable for dishwasher.

    Please be aware that wet untreated oak can leave stains on a surface, like a table top or tablecloth. Water extracts the natural tannins in the wood which might leave discolorations on a surface.

About the designer / Teruhiro Yanagihara

Yanagihara studied design at Osaka University of Art and established his own studio in 2002 with the vision of exploring the boundaries between tradition and renewal, linking modern technology and the demands of industrial production with a strong Japanese sense of aesthetics and spirituality.

Yanagihara is inspired by contemporary art and food, everyday habits and behaviour and spending time with friends and family. He is also a big fan of coherence and narrativity and dreams of designing a total space – not just products and interiors but all the details and elements in between – in order to create a rich atmosphere with relevant content in an inspirational unity.
