Soytun is a ceramic piece designed for the increasingly common tasting of the various forms of presentation of raw fish such as sashimi, sushi, tartar... etc
This design serves to contain soy sauce, also has a place for spicy mustard (wasabi) and finally has a part to let chopsticks when they are not used.



"An unexpected finding, or rather a present that the sea brought us. A vertebra of a tuna found in a walk along the shore of a beach in Cadiz. The shape of this fishbone fascinated us, a whole design of natural engineering. We patiently studied the architecture of the buttresses of the vertebra as well as the cones where are joined together the different parts of the fishbone. Through a complex interpretation, we arrived at the final shape of the design."

The packaging design is inspired by the ancient cardboard boxes of natural history museums, which in Victorian times were used to contain the zoological and botanical specimens collected in the various scientific expeditions. The gift box is made entirely of recycled cardboard, making it a singular example of eco-packaging, fully respectful with the environment.
