Ceramic lidded jar by Uno + Ichi. Lift off your cuties hair to sneakily store valuables.
What's In A Name
Uno+Ichi means “one plus one” — uno as in the Spanish word for “one,” and ichi as in the Japanese word for “one”. We found this fitting for its more literal meaning of two people working together on something: me+you, Joanna+Hana, 1+1. We also wanted it to speak to our feelings of taking this one step at a time. It represented our belief that we could build something by taking those little steps, one at a time, each day.
What's In A Symbol
Inspired by seal script, Uno+Ichi’s logo builds on our interest in linguistics and mark-making. The logo is a personified version of the ancient Chinese character for “和,” which can mean “and” and “harmonious.” This character sums up Uno+Ichi’s collaborative process — just as disparate musical notes together can create harmonious music, our collaboration is comprised of two artists contributing different perspectives on a singular vision, and of course, a character is turned into a character.
