MADE IN JAPAN

KEISOUDO NO OKITOKEI
Keisoudo no okitokei is made from diatomaceous earth and produced using a traditional Japanese plastering technique. The design maximizes the feature and atmosphere of the diatomaceous earth, which brings us warmth when touched. It suits a natural-material interior not only for a Japanese “Wa” atmosphere with wood or plaster, but also a modern-taste atmosphere.SiO2, the logo displayed on the clock, is the chemical symbol of the main component of diatomaceous earth.
