Chi has always been playing a crucial role in Oriental philosophy and medicine ever since the ancient time. Chi is invisible but constantly affects the human body and our way of living; it is also believed to have the power to heal. The concept of revitalizing vacation that has recently gained popularity is also related to Chi, since magnificent landscape and temples are typical places that contain positive energy that can refresh the exhausted bodies and soul.
KIKOF is a lifestyle brand founded by Ryosuke Uehara and Yoshie Watanabe. Inspired by Lake Biwa, the lake that is considered to be the greatest source of energy in Japan, the duo collaborates with one of the six major ancient kilns called Shigaraki Ware to produce pottery that combines traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design. To celebrate the brand’s fourth anniversary, KIKOF launched a new collection of tableware themed around Chikubu Island in Lake Biwa. There is a saying that Chikubu Island is where the immortals reside, KIKOF then incorporated the myth into its minimalistic origami-like pottery. The beautiful and tranquilizing emerald green color of the collection well depicts the supernatural aura, or, the Chi of Chikubu Island.
