he brand SEE SEE came about when designer Hiro Yumoto, who wanted to fuse American culture with traditional crafts, crossed paths with wood-turner Toshifumi Momose. Their partnership led to the creation of exquisitely turned items, from lampshades to skateboards. This tray was inspired by the LEXUS spindle grille and endeavors to encapsulate luxury through woodturning. Carefully refined in sync with the subtle changes in grain, climate and humidity, the form and line of the tray are the fruits of exceptional skill and years of experience. The tray’s coloring incorporates tea leaves grown locally in Shizuoka Prefecture, and their deep black accentuates any object placed on its surface. Finally, a special finish is applied by glass coating, which gives the tray an elegant sheen similar to that of a car. With its reversible design that can be used either facing up or down, this tray will turn heads wherever you place it.
