The ASHI 3 Piece Fireplace Tool Set, designed by German Kaschkasch, has proven yet again that even the most useful, everyday object can be clever, elegant, and deserving of appreciation. The set includes the t-stand, tong, poker, shovel and brush. The wooden handles feature a strong built-in magnet that holds the tools securely to the stand when not in use. The complete tool set becomes a decorative item in your living space.
A collection name could not be more fitting as the term ASHI comes from the Japanese word meaning reed. The shape of Ashi is inspired by the swaying reeds that grow in abundance in shallow water; the handle has a similar contour, and the stick resembles the strong, hollow stems that have been used for centuries as a material for the production of baskets.
