Designer Makoto Koizumi came up with ‘Asahineko’ as a playful acronym made out the names of five types of commonly used conifers in Japan – ‘A’ for Asunaro, SA for Sawara, HI for Hinoki, NE for Nezuko, and KO for Koyamaki. This trivet is a beautiful display of traditional Japanese joinery techniques at a smaller scale. A combination of five commonly used coniferous trees in Japan is used in this design of a pentagon shaped trivet. Enjoy subtleties of the unique wood grain of each species while using this beautiful everyday kitchen tool!
