Brass Paperweight Triangle

€ 53,00
This Futagami Brass Paperweight Triangle is about the size of a walnut and makes a very beautiful functional desk object. A perfect gift.

Weighing about 215 grams it is the lightest of the three Paperweights Oji Masanori has designed.

If you look closer, you will see that all surfaces except for two, have the Futagami signature IHADA finish. The other two are polished to underline the different finishes of the brass spectrum. The paperweight gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it...

The Futagami Paperweights are polyhedral objects, which means it has three dimensions with flat polygonal faces, straight edges and sharp corners. The most well-known polyhedra are cubes (dices) and pyramids.  

These brass paperweights are just plain beautiful objects for on your desk, and we like to pick them up every once in a while to see the faces and the differences in finish.

About Futagami

If there’s a visceral part of the Futagami products that can’t be shown in a photograph, it’s their weight: a reminder of their reality. Hyper-dense objects, like brass paperweights, remind you of what’s real when they sit in the palm of your hand. While most of our world is getting smaller and lighter, heavy metals pin you into place with their gravity. This is something that the designers and craftsmen at Futagami know well: before it was a lifestyle brand, Futagami was a manufacturer of Buddhist devotional objects.

We’re intrigued by the odd luster of their brasswork, too. Futagami brass is untreated, meaning that it reacts quickly the oils of your skin when you touch it. This means that the way the light glints off of, say, a paperweight, will be different when you first take it out of the box to the tenth time you move it across the table, to the hundredth time, to the thousandth time. It’s a continually evolving process, meaning the beauty it bears now is only one stage of its life. Buying one of these sand-cast bronze pieces is not just a purchase for today, but a purchase for decades from now, when its true beauty — unique to you after years of use — will be revealed.

We’re enamoured with Futagami, and are proud to stock them in our online shop, as well as at our store in Amsterdam.
