E.R. Butler & Co. Candlestick Holders
Intrigued by the classic but delicate shape of a Biedermeier candlestick found at a flea market, and impressed by the precision of nineteenth-century lathe work, Ted Muehling tried to capture these qualities using traditional spinning and casting techniques. Daunted, however, by the cost and labour required to realize them, the pieces remained as prototypes.
Ten years after seeing Ted’s pieces, Rhett Butler of E.R. Butler & Co. suggested that Muehling try a technology which he used to produce his exquisite hardware. Butler’s computerized lathes have given life to the designs. This process allows for precise control of the beautiful curves that make these pieces so elegant.

Kaikado Tea Caddies
Kaikado was established in 1875 in the city of Kyoto by Seisuke, creator of the first Kaikado tin tea caddy. With a manufacturing process that involves up to 140 steps, this 130-year-old Chazutsu (tea caddy) remains Kaikado’s signature product and is appreciated for its style and functional, airtight design.
The current successor, Takahiro, developed a two-tiered tea caddy. He has initiated the first-ever collaborations with tea brands and has started marketing his caddies abroad. Adding a new element per generation is a tradition that Kaikado has carried on throughout its history.
