This original design has vertical, smooth surfaces and a stepped expression ("Naoki" means 'straight' or 'upright' in Japanese). Made of thick, pure unfinished aluminum, then powder coated satin black. The cups have a folded lip at the top and are very stiff. The ring between the connecting wires adds a beautiful finishing touch to the design. All wires and hardware are high grade stainless steel.
Powdercoating will last on exterior products; paint will not! Avoid cheap copies with painted parts!
Powder coating is a type of coating which includes metal that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals.

To prevent damage in transit and reduce packaging volume, the upper wires are shipped separately from the cups, so some assembly is required -- it takes just a few minutes with no tools. See our Assembly/Installation page for more information.
