Modern Day Bells

sound objects

Lin Yu (Yuu Rin)

Designer: Rie Isono

I don’t know what should I call these – modern day sound objects, bells or soundscapes. Japanese designer Rie Isono has clearly succeeded in encompassing traditional casting techniques and modern technologies & aesthetics to produce this murmur of a sound like hand made products.

Put it in the living room, on the door, in window or on your desk, I suppose it can be your relaxation-play buddy. Lin Yu series is available in 3 variations.
