More about the Japanese brand "Aero Concept":
Aero Concept was founded in Tokyo in 2003 and grew out of the philosophy, skill and passion of its creator, Keiichi Sugano. These beautiful and practical objects are testament to Sugano’s art and creativity – from taking his original idea to using his hands and vision to bring together materials and tools to make it a reality.
Aero Concept has its roots in a small precision engineering company called Keiswi that specialises in making component parts for Boeing and Airbus airplanes and for Shinkashen, the Japanese high speed bullet trains. Such clients require the highest quality materials worked to an exacting level of precision. Keiswi is a small family business with a long established reputation. It's present owner, Keiichi Sugano, born in Tokyo in 1951, took over the company from his grandfather, a highly skilled craftsman who was appointed chief builder for the replacement of the copper roof on Osaka Castle in
