For some good design is about usefulness. For others, good design is less tangible. It might be something that is capable of provoking an emotional response - perhaps through beauty or wonder. We share the belief that there is a moral or ethical component to design and that design can be resposible for enriching our lives,
“doing good” and even act as powerful agent of change. Or just make you happy. Liten Jizô can be your very personal and humble reminder of what’s important in life, an emotional perception of values…

A PYTTE-LITEN JIZÔ (tiny Liten Jizô)
SIZED TO ACCOMPANY YOU DURING
WITH INFLUENCES FROM TWO LEGENDS, LITEN JIZO IS MADE OF 5kg KINDNESS AND 28cm TOLERANCE.
A descendant of Japanese Jizô and Swedish Hus-troll, Liten Jizô is an original mix of multicultural influences. Liten Jizôs bring about a melting pot of tolerance, kindness and acceptance.
/// The Jizo Bodhisattva figures are particularly revered in Asia, especially in Japan. They are known to cure illnesses and help people who didn’t do enough good deeds to liberate themselves and reach Nirvana. They are not to be confused with Buddhas, of whom they are disciples. Jizos are living legends, often symbolized by a simple rock dressed up in a red apron. You’ll meet them in the countryside ditches alongside fresh offerings.
/// The Hus-Troll of Nordic heritage strives to protect the home it is devoted to. In honour of an old Swedish belief, you can still see on Christmas Eve a bowl of porridge placed on doorsteps of homes for the Troll of the house. An empty bowl in the morning signifies that the Hus-Troll is happy and the home will be blessed throughout the year. Hence, because of their Swedish heritage, Liten Jizôs are faithful protectors of the home.
MADE OF SOFT CONCRETE IN SWEDEN.
Beyond the similarity, each piece is unique. Made one by one near Stockholm, Sweden, Liten Jizôs are the product of traditional know-how and high-tech mineral concrete. Hence, each statuette has its own colour and texture variations. They are made of “soft concrete”, with an elasticity about three times higher than ordinary concrete, a quality that can be felt when patting the Liten Jizô. The colours come from inorganic pigments integrated in the concrete mix.
