Object of Desire: Timber Pot from Rokurosha

February 7, 2018

Japan-based woodturner Yoshio Sakai believes it’s time to “drastically redefine the value of things.” To him that means starting with a discarded log and transforming it into a “meaningful resource.” A beautiful resource, as well. Each Timber planter pot from Sakai’s Rokurosha Workshop has expressive wood graining and a subtle scent of the Japanese cedar from which it was made.

A Timber Pot is available in two sizes; 3,780 JPY and 4,860 JPY from Rokurosha. For more retailers in Japan, see Rokurosha Stockists.

Born in 1980 in Otaru, Hokkaido, Sakai traveled widely and studied with a traditional woodturner before winning a Young Designer Award in 2015 at Interior Lifestyle Tokyo, the largest international consumer goods trade show in the world.

Also available from New Zealand–based Everyday Needs, a small, four-inch-high Japanese Cedar Planter Pot is \$85 NZD.
