This compact dish rack contains generous storage, even with its slim proportions. Designed to fit in the narrow gaps beside sinks, the sloping tray allows water to flow naturally back into the sink, eliminating standing water mildew and rust. When not in use, you can fit the stainless tray onto the top of the rack for an added kitchen workspace area. The unique U-shaped frame holds plates vertically, allowing water to drain faster and prevent water spots from forming. The utensil rest holds chopsticks and cutlery easily, and each side is designed so that slim cutting boards can be hung on them. Every feature has been designed to utilise the dead space around your sink in the most efficient ways possible.
Tsubamesanjo, Niigata Prefecture is a town famous for its metal processing and technological evolution. With the history and traditions of such manufacturing still preserved by craftsmen in this area, new advanced industrial technology continues to develop, making Tsubamesanjo homewares ideal products for the modern home, while still living within tradition.
Tsubame and Sanjo, often referred to as “mid-prefecture,” are two cities located almost in the center of Niigata Prefecture. Tsubame-Sanjo is famous for its metal processing, but it is also a region rich in nature – thanks to the Shinano river, Japan’s longest, that runs through the region – and is known as a production center for delicious rice and fruits. Its fertile land has long contributed to a harvest of agricultural products and prosperity.
The tradition of metal fabrication in these two towns dates back over 400 years to the Edo period (1603-1867), with the manufacturing of metal nails marking a turning point in Japan’s industrial revolution. Since then, Tsubame-Sanjo has become one of the world’s leading technological zones, continuously developing new ways to improve and evolve industrial technologies to meet new challenges amid changing times. But time-honoured techniques of the past are not forgotten. Some traditional industries, such as Tsuiki copperware and forging, are still passed down in an unbroken line from generation to generation, while simultaneously embracing present-day lifestyles with contemporary metal products and tools that no modern household can do without. In this way, the manufacturing tradition of Tsubame-Sanjo continues to evolve.
