Minimal design and function
Unique continuous cow-skin patterns printed on all six faces of the lighter
The Hard-edge was introduced in 1999 when contemporary lighter design had moved towards streamlined and decorative forms. Japanese brand Tsubota Pearl 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. The Hard-edge has since become an iconic item in their catalogue spanning over 60 years.
