Why?

The first 1000 pieces were made to 100% Design Tokyo exhibition and market in 2008. Our aim was to create an attractive, tricky and versatile object. The project has been going on ever since. It is a regular guest on local and international design markets. The third series of it is currently being made.

How?

There is a super slim 2.0 flash drive in the casing, which is decorated with flower patterns and Hímes logo.
