SAKE

In Japanese, "sake" can refer to any alcoholic beverage, and this time, we're focusing on a variety of sake-related designs. Japanese bars and pubs are a treasure trove of fantastic design: red lanterns, noren curtains, casual counters and tables. The Japanese have also honed the design of sake glasses and cups that enhance the flavor of your drink. We'll explore the world of sake design with Kazuhiko Ota, a designer who's visited Japanese-style bars all across the country.
