Consisting of white plates, bowls, sushi roll holders and a sake set, decorated in Arita’s trademark blue and red glazes, the collection was born as the result of Arita Plus approaching Nobu ten months ago. There’s nothing the chef likes more than creating crockery that complements his ever-evolving menu; in the past he’s designed teapots and bento boxes, soba sets and sushi tools. "I’m always devising new dishes and I quite often can’t fine the crockery I need, so I like to design my own," he explains.
