KYO Cups

Snorre Læssøe Stephensen, 1962

KYO was designed in 1962, by Snorre Læssøe Stephensen, one of the forefathers of the Danish ceramic tradition. The collection carries traces of both Scandinavia and Japan. Both functional and sculptural, the new collection from mazo is very Scandinavian and Japanese at the same time. The series consists of cups, pitchers, and vases made of porcelain and stoneware. Functionality and simplicity define these products - they are modest and have an almost stern expression, yet with a delicate touch.

Prices from: 195 DKK / 25 EUR / 35 GBP / 25 USD

The KYO series is designed by Snorre Læssøe Stephensen, one of the forefathers of the
Danish ceramic tradition.

“Even though KYO was drawn decades ago, it
corresponds perfectly with our take on form,
function and craft. The shapes are clean and
without superfluous elements. Still, there is a
complexity to be found in the interaction between
stone, porcelain and wood,” says partner and head
of design Magnus Sangild.

Snorre Læssøe Stephensen

Snorre Læssøe Stephensen’s path into the world of clay and porcelain started with a playful collaboration with his Father, designer and architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen. Soon, though, it was Snorre Læssøe Stephensen who was creating designs for Royal Copenhagen, and later became the leader of the unique items line of the Royal Danish Academy of Arts, whilst he continued to carry out his innovative ideas in his own brand.
