The Small Factory Ring is designed by the contemporary artist Kaori Tazoe and produced by a family company called Yazawa Manufacturing in Ota-ku. This neighbourhood Ota in Tokyo is known for the many small metalworking factories. Yazawa Manufacturing is specialized in precision work for the purpose of very small parts for industrial machines.
In addition to the rings with one of more holes, Kaori Tazoe has also designed a series of cups that can be screwed onto the rings. She was inspired by the forms of the industrial products, that are usually produced by the factory. Endless amount of different rings can be created by combining different types of rings and different types of cups.
After this “Yazawa” model, that came about with help from Yawaza Manufacturing Co, there will be more models developed in the future with the help of special technology from other small factories in Ota-ku.
