MONOTON - Presenting A New Japanese Style That Transcends Tradition and Modernity

MONOTON presents the new Japanese style that transcends tradition and modernity. It presents the aesthetics of subtraction that highlights the essence by thoroughly cutting away unnecessary things and polishing what remains, consisting of objects and hearts.

Between what the eye can see and what lies deep within. What MONOTON pursues is the essence of Japan as a state of mind.

SANEI LTD., a Japanese manufacturer specializing in faucet fittings, primarily manufacturing and selling plumbing products, was founded as an assembling and wholesaling of plumbing supplies in 1954. In the late 1960s, they started their own factory production. The Japan-originated shower-equipped hot and cold-water faucet became a pioneering hit product ahead of its time as indoor baths became popular in households across the country.

Currently, they provide the faucets specializing in design, such as CYE series designed by Makoto Tanijiri, SUTTO series designed by Yasumichi Morita, and MONOTON series designed by Mr. Eiri Iwakura.
