DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Yozakura

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sake Set

INSPIRATION:
Japanese aesthetic and the Sakura cherry blossom pattern were the major inspirations for this sake set. Yozakura literally translate as night Sakura, it is a Japanese tradition of enjoying the beauty of the Sakura at night by gathering under lighted trees to celebrate the beauty of nature and the arrival of spring with delicious sake and food.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This sake set is inspired by the Sakura pattern, the pentagon cup's inside is carved as the blossomed flower and the opening of the carafe resembles a Sakura petal falling in the wind.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Sake is poured from a Sakura petal, the carafe's opening, into the bloomed Sakura flower, the inside of the pentagon cup. The user then drinks the sake from one of the flower petals found at the corner of each cup. The sake interacts beautiful with the cup, forming a flower into the carving. It especially works well with the white Nigori sake, while pouring sake the flower slowly blooms.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
first prototype made in 2012. production will start in Seto, Japan early 2015 and distribution in mid 2015.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
slip cast porcelain, glaze and food safe luster.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
sets will be available with 2 or 4 cups, in black with an optional gold or silver finish. carafe: 150 mm x 75 mm (diameter) - 250 ml cup: 30 mm x 55 mm (diameter) - 27 ml

TAGS:
porcelain, drinkware, sake, sakura, gold, silver, black, cup, carafe

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I researched the Sakura pattern thoroughly to come up with the perfect flower design for the inside of the pentagon cup. I also did extensive research on traditional and modern sake set designs.

CHALLENGE:
The first prototype of the carafe was having a dripping issue. So I added a slight spout and made the petal opening into an angle to resolve the issue. The final design is more organic and sleek. I made many cup prototypes to experiment with different depths of the flower carving in order to maintain a harmonious balance in the design. I also had to learn 3D modeling in order to create a symmetric design. I used the 3D printed models to make the plaster molds and the porcelain prototypes.
