We have been using an old tupperware butter dish all along – what were we thinking? This wooden one oozes minimalism and an urbane aesthetic. It could very well become our reason to get up in the mornings, for a ‘designer breakfast’. Not a bad way to start the day for style aficionados. This butter container is handmade by Japanese designer Oji Masanori and retails at around R807 ($120). It’s available in Japanese Walnut and Maple from the Mjölk online shop.
