The supple and biodegradable Wasara series is made from reed, bamboo and sugarcane waste.
If a Communion wafer mated with a tulip, their love child would probably look a lot like a Wasara. Such corporal relations are unlikely, but so is the Wasara, a biodegradable series of single-use dinnerware made from reed, bamboo and bagasse pulp (the waste produced from sugarcanes).
Like my Sunday risotto is to a Nigirizushi at Nobu, my words are far too clumsy to capture the subtleties and nuances of Shinichiro Ogata’s design. I’ll leave it to the company to explain:
“Wasara’s elegant flowing forms will accentuate the delicacy of the cuisine choreographing the graceful movements on those who hold them.”
Based on today’s exchange rates, an order of 8 plates costs up to $14. The company is donating a portion of their sales to Red Cross Japan to aid in the ongoing Tsunami recovery.
