Atelier Senyū lacquer tableware bentō/interior décor boxes, are handcrafted with indigenous Japanese cypress wood (hinoki: [檜]) by Japanese traditional artisans who view wood as a living substance that is given a second life in the shape that it becomes. No nails, screws, or metal pieces are utilized in the woodworking with the sides, corners, and bottom section dovetailed together using long-established Japanese wood joinery techniques.
Using Atelier Senyū tableware in harmony with this artisan view, to enhance the visual flavor of your food is an elegantly distinctive way to add a delightful element of food plating and presentation surprise for your daily, informal social, or special celebratory meals.
Lids and tiers are slowly lifted to reveal mouthwatering aromas and succulent ingredients, the arrangement of your ingredients in the bentō box suggesting a certain restrained 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.
