AIRVASE x Torafu Architects

Japanese studio Torafu Architects (Koichi Suzuno and Shinya Kamuro) designed AIRVASE, a paper container than can be stretched into different shapes, like bowls and vases.

The paper is thin and lightweight but when expanded it is rigid and strong enough to stand alone. Colours on each side of the paper create a different impression depending on the angle from which you look at it.
