Tsubota Pearl - Hard Edge lighter
The Hard-edge lighter was introduced in 1999 when contemporary lighter design had moved towards streamlined and decorative forms. We took a contrarian approach to introduce an un-ergonomic lighter with minimal ‘hard’ outlines, emphasising its objectness. This was an outcome of multiple efforts to strip all decoration for function — the simple shape of the lighter is what emerged from this investigation.
