Japanese design collective Nendo unveils its latest offering with the “suzu,” a small item container made of porcelain that is crafted by the highly-skilled artisans of Sèvres, one of the principal European porcelain manufacturers located in France.

Because of this, artisans check the quality of their pieces by lightly flicking the porcelain’s surface. As an expression of this sign of masterful craftsmanship, the design of the sized small item containers incorporates a lid that rings like a bell. Once the lid is removed to access the accessories or snacks stored within, a delicate, crystal clear ringing chimes.

Available in a total of five different size and height combinations that each produces its own unique tone, the coloring of the containers features a dark blue pigment made with cobalt oxide, alongside the addition of some white detail and a touch of gold for a truly luxe and sophisticated aesthetic.

In other cool designs, this lightning lamp is pure heat.
