I don't think I've ever seen quite a cup like the Kami mug cup. Made entirely out of wood, it is stunningly minimalist due to its natural roots.

The hand-carved Kami mug cup was made at Hidetoshi Takahashi's woodworking factory in Asahikawa, Japan. He has been creating contemporary tableware using traditional techniques for years. Only 50 pieces of this particular cup were made, each priced at $48. This limited-edition piece has been branded with a Wallpaper* asterisk.
