Caps for California





Chapeau to Rapha’s cycling connoisseurs for inviting us to create eight classic caps for each Tour of California stage. Hardworking design domestiques deftly integrated graphic patterns, a signature House Industries color palette and alphanumeric elements from our forthcoming House Vélo font family in this epic ensemble. Perfect for hiking up windswept mountain switchbacks, jockeying behind finish-line barriers, nibbling savory crêpes in the VIP bleachers or nonchalantly sipping pression à froid at an adjacent bar/tabac, these caps will endure the aesthetic and logistical rigors faced by multi-stage race fans with stylistic souplesse.

Monohara Ceramic Collection by House


House Industries, Monohara, Hasami, Ceramics, M pattern, kurawanka

Artisans in the Nagasaki prefecture town of Hasami have been manufacturing ceramics for over four centuries, and their revolutionary climbing kilns once produced the highest volume of daily-use cups, bowls and plates in Japan. In late 2012, Hasami’s Kyohei Baba asked us to create a new brand by designing a tableware collection. Kyohei recognized our acute appreciation for Japanese culture and our unique typographic perspective after the aesthetic and commercial success of our Hasami Morning Collection.

We found much of our inspiration quite literally in Hasami’s backyard—the trench filled with 400 years worth of cast offs and blemished items. Artifacts from Hasami’s ceramic trash pit are the best link to the past and one of the keys to Hasami’s future, so Kyohei named his new brand Monohara, which translates colloquially to “The trash pit next to the climbing kiln.”

Our efforts centered around preserving and celebrating Hasami’s collective culture while helping to establish a perpetually viable business and promoting it on an international level. We created custom artwork for each of the 15 pieces and did our best to backfill Hasami’s fabled trash pits by working through countless prototypes before achieving the best balance, scale and continuity in each item. The Monahara wordmark references the brushwork of Edo Era Hasami village artisans, whose latin letterforms evoked Hiragana sensibilities on Japanese products that were exported to Europe in the 19th Century.

The nesting ceramic collection includes five plate options, six bowl sizes, teacups, teapots, a compra bottle and a tenugui cloth. Three different hand-crafted Japanese Paulownia wood boxes are also available: One for the entire collection, one for a set of plates and one for a complete tea service.
