Torafu Architects create incredibl y beautiful projects for clients and also design products for Kaminokousakujo. Air Vase is a paper vase that enfolds air. Simply adjust its shape to suit your own personal requirements. The fine lightweight paper is deceptively strong and can be used for purposes such as a t ray for small objects, to decorate a vase, gi f t wrap a bottle of wine or simply as its own work of modern art. Enjoy the ever-changing patterns as you expand and compactit in diverse ways. The colours are l i s ted here and all have their own features such as the Mat te Black that creates a 3D illusion, the Gold /Silver checker pattern that catches light to create an impressive sparkling display, the coloured pieces that look different depending on the light.
