Japanese woodworkers view wood as a living substance that is given a second life in the shape that it becomes.
The presentation of Japanese food using fine wooden receptacles blends contrasts with the wood type, shape, and color of the receptacle. Lids and tiers are lifted to reveal mouth watering aromas and succulent ingredients. The arrangement of the ingredients may suggest a certain rhythm of eating, typically slowing it down, inviting you to take a bite then put your chopsticks down for a moment, to savor the aesthetics of your meal.
In harmony with this aesthetic, Atelier Senyuu has created a beautiful collection of lacquerware bentō (lunch) boxes made from Japanese cypress, which double as elegent food presentation receptacles for that special event or regular meal, which any sophisticated culinary artist or ardent foodie, will immediately appreciate.
Atelier Senyuu boxes can also be used as accent pieces, to add warmth and character to your home or office interior décor to express your personal style. These are multifunctional Japanese artisan collectibles that you can treasure forever, pass on to your family and loved ones, or gift to that special person. Complement your bentō box purchase with an additional purchase of handmade Senyuu chopsticks that come with their own carrying case. Handcrafted tea cup coasters are also available for your afternoon tea.
All products are handmade in Japan by a traditional Japanese woodcraft artisan we represent, signed with the artisan's trademark Japanese kanji.
