A tribute to Akiko

The idea of making a new design for the garden games croquet and boule was that they should be more than nice tools, they should also be objects you wanted to have standing on your terrace as nice objects.

AKIKO was a japanese student working for us. She arrived in our studio and we made her work on the garden games. She came with all her passion for craft and quality in detailing and we had endless talks about every aspect of the games. We made the boxes as small shrines in teak with fittings in stainless steel. The boxes where packed with all things fitted nicely inside. In the end we had to call the games Akiko as a tribute to our nice Japanese student and her Japanese culture.
