BUNKA is a range of tableware that has been designed based on a menu of Japanese cuisine. In collaboration with the restaurant Naniwa Sushi & More in Düsseldorf, a menu was created that brings out the diversity of miso. The design addresses the characteristics of the food and the eating habits of Japanese and German culture. As a result, the tableware reflects a very clear yet striking design language.
