Our story

Form and function manifest in their purest expression at the hands of a master artisan.

Our Brand

The celebration of design, craft and heritage.

Kuriēto is a celebration of design, craft and heritage, with a nod to contemporary and Scandinavian influence. Each piece has been handcrafted with painstaking attention to detail and profound respect for techniques and traditions passed down through generations.

Overs years working closely with the world’s leading restaurants and chefs, including some of world’s best-known culinary institutions, Kuriēto has curated a range of truly unique ceramic and glass tableware.

Each Kuriēto piece, its texture, colour and form, has been designed to allow its contents to sing. In its restrained beauty, the vessel does not speak louder than the food: it is the stage, not the star. However, it is the interplay between each stunningly designed plate and the food it holds that calls to mind the words of Jun'ichirō Tanizaki: “… lost in contemplation of flavours to come, I feel as if I were being drawn into a trance.”

Our Process

Our pieces are the stage on which the theatre of dining unfolds in the world’s finest restaurants.

Since our inception, Kuriēto has been fortunate and privileged to forge strong relationships with artisans across Japan working with ceramic and glass. From city to city, region to region, the tools and techniques vary, producing pieces unique to individual artisans and families. For most, their methodology is a closely guarded secret. And as true artists, their wares are available only through few and trusted sources. These are connections, our deep appreciation for design, and our unfaltering commitment to impeccable quality led to Kuriēto’s inimitable range. Our pieces are the stage on which the theatre of dining unfolds in the world’s finest restaurants.
