New label “UNKOWN REPORT” starts
DVERG's new label "UNKOWN REPORT" has finally started. As a commemorative first step, we launched the cover series ``NEBULA'', which is made of copper material and finished with Japanese craftsmanship. It features a fantastic and unique expression suitable for "NEBULA".
*Pre-order sales start from 12:00 on Monday, June 26, 2023
*Sales are only available on the DVERG official website.
DVERG's new label "UNKNOWN REPORT" literally translates to "Unconfirmed Report." We explore traditional Japanese materials, techniques, and manufacturing methods that are still unknown to the world, and sublimate them into innovative products by harmonizing them with modern advanced technology. Through our adventurous spirit and creative exploration, we create new value and deliver tangible reports to the world.
The processing of the base material was commissioned to Takahashi Shibori Kogyo, which boasts top-level spatula drawing technology in the downtown area. An original shape was created just for this occasion, and the craftsmanship was used to create a uniform thickness.
The coloring was done by Momentum Factory Orii, which usually handles Buddhist statues and works of art. By utilizing the corrosive nature of copper and controlling chemicals and flame using traditional techniques, unique colors that cannot be expressed by machines are created.
"Coloring" does not mean painting. This is a traditional technique that takes advantage of the corrosive nature of copper to create vivid colors by controlling chemicals and flames. Momentum Factory Orii has developed a traditional coloring technique that could only be expressed on cast products, and has now achieved coloring on thin copper plates of 1mm or less. Enjoy the authentic colors brought out by the materials.
Each item is created one by one by the hands of craftsmen, and no two pieces are the same. I think this can be called a work of art rather than a product. The original use is as a gas can cover, but it can also be used as an art object.
