Katachi: The Essence of Japanese Design

The term katachi refers to the essence of Japanese design, such as that of the shape, symmetry, and craftsmanship of traditional craft.
The objects in Katachi embody the union of elegance and usefulness that is central to the Japanese aesthetic, and are made of materials that have played an important role in Japanese life for centuries including wood, bamboo, stone, cloth, metal, and soil. With our collection we continually strive to showcase products that embody the katachi essence ranging from exquisite bento boxes that get their inspiration from authentic Japanese Bento Boxes, characteristics, craftsmanship along with a range of accessories that follow the same ideology.


We originally built this business around a personal hobby of collecting authentic Japanese bento boxes from around the world. What started as an obsession within a few years turned into long-lasting profitable business.

At the time a good range of bento lunch boxes was hard to find in Australia so we visited many suppliers and after a few years of hunting and negotiation, we established strong and long-lasting relationships with many suppliers.

Did you know that Bento Boxes were banned in Japan?

After the World War, the distinction between the wealthy and poor became evident across Japan due to a boom in exports and repeated crop failures. The poor were hungry, yet the wealthy could afford the most expensive items, including aluminium bento boxes. This caused schools to eliminate bento boxes as they were a social issue reflecting the student’s wealth. Bento boxes made from aluminium were affordable to wealthy families and were treated as a status symbol with an assortment of elegantly prepared nutritious foods. Read more about Bento Box History
