"Kobo" meaning "rays" or "radiance", perfectly encapsulates the bold patterns and lines of this beautiful brass coaster.

Takaoka, Japan.


Brass, Silicone.


It is highly recommended to keep the coasters dry after usage.  If any liquid is left on the coasters for a long period of time, the minerals in the water will accumulate and create white stains. To remove the water stains, dilute 5 % citric acid with water to make a solution.  Use this solution to wipe the coaster with a clean cloth then rise and dry well.


Any drops of water that run down the glass to the coaster slide into the ray patterns, creating a space that allows the coaster not to stick to any drink. At the back of the coaster, there is a silicone ring that prevents damaging of tables or any surface.



Takaoka is a city on the coast of Japan's Honshu Island. The central Takaokakojo Park is home to the ruins of Takaoka Castle, plus water-filled moats and spring cherry blossoms.
