“KITCHIBE / likestone” ROOM FRAGRANCE

KITCHIBE/likestone is a new brand of room fragrances created through a collaboration between three expert companies: Shiono Koryo, a Japanese fragrance company with a history of over 200 years; Housen-gama, a producer of traditional Mino ceramics and Qurz Inc., a company founded by the designer Takumi Shimamura.
Shiono Koryo was founded in 1808 in Dosho-machi, Osaka. It garnered success by being the first company in Japan to produce domestically made citrus essences, and has a strong presence in the field of flavors in addition to the fragrance market. Shiono Koryo works with affiliated companies in countries such as Taiwan and China to produce fragrances for businesses both throughout Japan and overseas.
Housen-gama established in Toki, a city in Gifu Prefecture that is famous for Mino ceramics. It began with the production of porcelain bowls, and has expanded overseas as Japanese cuisine has become popular around the world. In January 2016, Housen-gama attracted global attention by launching likestone, a series of ceramic dishes resembling stones, at the Maison et Object trade fair in France.
Designer Takumi Shimamura gained an international recognition with the launch of his cedar bag monacca in 2004. His Tokyo based office Qurz Inc. is focused on product, interior and brand design.
The KITCHIBE project combines Japanese craftsmanship, organic design and iconic scents. Six fragrances have been elaborated: SAKURA, WASHI, MATCHA, YUKI, KITCHIBE and YUZU. Each has an original design inspired by the climate, history and esthetics of Japan.

ROOM FRAGRANCE
DIFFUSERS

KITCHIBE’s specially designed ceramic diffusers are the result of extensive collaboration
between our designer and craftspeople, who worked together to reach the standard production they expected.
These ceramic products recreate the organic patterns found on stones in nature.
Clay is liquefied and poured into a mold to shape it without losing its natural pattern.
