S/N | Bookend
S/N is an expression of understated luxury through traditional craft. This bookend is not sold in a pair, but individually. Use a single bookend to prop up your favorite titles against a wall, or get two to create a stand alone selection of books in the middle of your desk or shelf. The brass will patina as it ages, exposing its true beauty over time.
Each brass piece is handmade so there may be slight variation. Brass will patina over time, so its appearance and texture will change with use.
A collaborative line designed by Taku Shinomoto, and handmade by the master craftspeople behind Nousaku Works, S/N is an expression of understated luxury through traditional craft. S/N products are created in Takaoka City in Toyama Prefecture, which has a history of metal casting that dates back to the 17th century. Utilizing casting techniques handed down from generation to generation, Nousaku brings a fresh take to an age-old craft. The company was established in 1916 as a producer of Buddhist altar equipment, tea utensils and flower vases. However, in recent years, the company has turned its focus to tableware, interior goods, and lighting fixtures that complement a contemporary lifestyle.

Brass will naturally patina over time. Oil and air will naturally darken this piece and make it shinier. This is part of its natural beauty. Do not use chemicals to clean. If exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time, it may cause the metal to change color quicker or spot.
