Kanei

Kanei is inspired by the mon, Japan’s currency during the Kan-Ei period (1624-1644). The mould’s layered concentric circles and arches symbolize waves and the flow of good fortune. Kanei comes in two shapes, Hi-Ball and DOF. The black-and-gold decoration band, and glass bottom with wave patterns and gold decoration, pay quiet tribute to the significance these symbols carry.

Fánróng

Fánróng is based on the Chinese symbol for Happiness and Long Life. Unsurprisingly, given what it stands for, it has always been one of the country’s most widespread symbols: travel through China today and you’ll still see countless examples everywhere. Fánróng comes in two capacities, Hi-Ball and DOF. The black gold decoration band with the bottom featuring the happiness symbol gives any drink that sense of occasion.

Niho

Niho comes in a set of four different decorations. A tasteful mix of greys and reds, with glass patterns inspired by Japanese architecture, generate a sense of elegant simplicity. Designed to suit any drink or table setting, and with its striking symbols, Niho brings a sense of style to any occasion.

Geisha, which literally means ‘person practicing the arts’, refers to women who dedicate their lives to traditional Japanese arts, using their talents to entertain distinguished clients at banquets and shows. Geisha are felt to personify sophistication and seen as vital guardians of Japanese culture and traditions.

Globally, the Dragon is possibly the best-known symbol of Chinese culture. Back home, the Chinese dragon represents success and being destined for a great future.

Cherry Blossom is Japan’s national flower, but also abundant across China. In Japan, because of its short life each year, the Cherry Blossom represents the ephemeral nature of life. In China, it is a symbol of both power and feminine strength.

The Koi is a fish with a rich history in Chinese and Japanese cultures. Legend has it that the koi fish embodies determination, dedication, perseverance and success. A powerful quartet of qualities.
