French for ‘One Day’ Yumiko’s unjour series of tableware is inspired by the relaxing moments we used to enjoy throughout our day; in the morning, afternoon or evening.
Each of the unjour cups is sized specifically to reclaim these lost moments:
‘Matin’ to greet the morning with a warm cup of coffee or fresh herbal tea
‘Apres Midi’ in the afternoon, ideal for an after lunch tea
‘Nuit’ for an early evening espresso
Ideally enjoyed using your own mix and match style, the unjour series is available in several beautiful colours, and the unjour PLATE (size S) can be used as the cup’s saucer.

YUMIKO IIHOSHI PORCELAIN
* * *
Yumiko’s concept is to create a design that is on the boundary between handmade and conventionally manufactured products.
All products are crafted in Japan.
After graduating from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, studying a Porcelain major, Yumiko started her own porcelain collection under her own name.
She designs and oversees the manufacture of porcelain tableware which combines the use of molds for uniformity, with hand glazing by artisans, to ensure each piece has a sense of individuality. Each ceramic glaze and shape is unique and original, taking inspiration from the functionality and pure sense of a vessel.
“It is not something that every single claim is too apparent. I thought that it would be nice to have warmth in design, but not argue too much.”
The aesthetic forms and unique palettes are infused with a sense of nostalgia, inspiring us to reflect and reminisce about time while using it in our daily lives.
