What sets Japanese woodworker Maeda Mitsuru apart from others is his compassionate point of view. From the items he makes, you can tell that he has spent a significant amount of time considering what might improve the user’s experience.

The lid of this butter case is slightly domed and thick enough so that it doesn’t warp even in the dry environment of the refrigerator. Wooden butter cases maintain the butter moist and softer than inside a ceramic or glass cases.
