The VYAC series is a lacquer stationery brand that was developed as a partnership between TSUCHINAO SHIKKI Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer of Echizen lacquerware, and CEMENT PRODUCE DESIGN Ltd. It is a challenge for a lacquerware manufacturer to achieve sustainable manufacturing. The designers created this lacquer stationery based on the concept of portable lacquerware. The idea was to contribute to a sustainable society in the future by creating new possibilities and demand for lacquer, one of Asia's natural resources, thereby raising awareness about the social impact of Asia for an international audience.
