Designed by Torafu Architects, Kami no Kousakujo's Air Vase has become so popular in design publications, it's already a contemporary classic. Laser cut to incredible precision, it starts as a circle of paper, which can be pulled out into a flexible fine lattice that is strong enough to be stretched and shaped around small object. Use it as gift-wrap, create ethereal bowls, or simply add another dimension to whatever it encloses. This pair of gold and silver checked Air Vases catch the light to add an extra sparkle to an already brilliant idea.
In 2006, Fukunaga Print, a paper company already renowned for innovative packaging solutions, began the Kami no Kousakujo (Paper Workshop) project to research and develop new and novel uses of paper. Since then, it has collaborated with numerous contemporary designers to produce a lineup of inventive and unusual stationery, games, objet and homewares, all constructed from the company’s range of quality paper and card.
