Candy Design & Works creates accessories inspired by the manufacturing techniques and product specs from the 1920s-60s. The name “Candy” originates from the album title of Lee Morgan, a jazz trumpeter beloved by the founder Jiro Kawamoto. Studying the old manufacturing specs down to its minute detail, the design company reinvents products nostalgic of the good-old days before mass production became the norm.
