Tokyo-born and based designer Makoto Koizumi has won so many awards that every new item that comes from his workshop is considered news and this is certainly the case with the two Tetu Nanbu Tekki Traditional Ironware Kettles. Koizumi's take on the classic cast iron teapots famous in Iwate Prefecture combines the mastery of traditional craftsmanship and materials with a new understanding of form and function. If you like Japanese design (or just tea!), you can't not have at least one.

To address different needs or tastes, Makoto Koizumi has created two designs: the more cylindrical Kyusu and the wider Tetsubin. Whichever you choose, the kettles are made in cast iron (enameled for the Kyusu) and with a magnificent wooden knob on its lid (walnut for the Kyusu and teak for the Tetsubin version). (The Kyusu kettle also comes with a stainless steel tea strainer.) Prepare your tea in one of the most elegant containers available and enjoy a purely Japanese experience for the palate and the eyes!
