Vermicular Cast Iron System

The new Vermicular Cast Iron System aims to combine ancient know-how with modern induction cooking possibilities. The story behind this cooking system goes all the way back to the mid 30s when the Hijikata family, the founders, created a cast iron factory. The unique material has the potential to enhance whatever you cook because of its ability to evenly disperse temperature and preserve moisture, plus you may set it on an open fire (mushikamado style) or in an oven and it will withstand the challenge without burning the content. What the most recent Hijikata brothers Kuni and Tomo did was add the possibility of giving it a modern twist with its induction base that will enable its users to fine tune the temperature. The induction energy is also ultra fast to heat it up saving you time, and you may also use it in a classic way by getting it in the oven.

The inner structure of the house was in a poor condition and the rooms were too small, so it was decided to keep only the facade and build a complet...

JERRY CAN BAR CABINET

The cool Jerry Can Bar Cabinet is a new product that gives an old iconic object a new, and dare we say, more meaningful life. So this Danish company takes old world war II Jerry cans, sandblasts them to get rid of the old paint and maybe some rust that could have been settling in, then restore them, powder coat them, and trim them exquisitely making magic by installing a luxurious wood shelve system that allows you to store some glasses, a cocktail mixer and up to t...
