YSTUDIO collaborates with Rakugei, a traditional foil art workshop in Japan, to create another unique piece. (2020)
Two editions are presented in this crafts series: “Heritage” edition and “Reborn” edition. Ancient Unryūhaku - discovered in a Japanese city called Kanazawa by the founder of Rakugei and grandfather of Kohei Murata before the Second World War – is used for “Heritage” edition. Since the original technique used in ancient Unryūhaku has scarcely documented, Murata family has been devoted to reviving this mysterious silver foil since the post-war period. Around half a century ago, they successfully created their version of Unryūhaku which is used in the “Reborn” edition of ystudio’s Unryūhaku pen.
Each edition has its unique beauty: “Heritage” edition is more dark-toned, intensifying the glittering vein-like pattern of aged foil while the one used in “Reborn” edition reveals a subtle pale gold luster as if joyfully celebrating the revitalizing of tradition.
＊The YAKIHAKU Rollerball Pen has won Taiwan Golden Pin Design Award 2022
Mr. Kohei Murata, the owner of Rakugei and the third generation successor of his family-owned foil technique, started to learn the "Flat foil" technique form his father while studying in university. Since then, Mr. Murata had won many awards in traditional craftsmanship.
