Phew / An electric kettle


Today's modern people are busy and have it hard to have time alone. But that doesn't mean we don't need time to spare. Still, we need it.
Rest for a while makes you look back on yourself and sometimes suggest solutions. We have come with the culture of the Japanese tea ceremony to solve these problems. Our goal is to give modern people a very short break through meaning of 一期一會(A once in a lifetime meeting) in the tea ceremony
You can have a time while you watch the cooling off water. It is a small gift to yourself in a busy day.
