This is a paper bowl that envelops air. You can freely change its shape by molding it. The thin and lightweight paper gains tension and strength when pulled out. By expanding and compacting it in diverse ways, you can enjoy the ever-changing patterns
Air Vases, designed by Torafu Architects and made in Japan, are reversible paper containers that gain strength and tension when they’re pulled into shape. You can freely change the shape to create a small dish, decorate a vase, or gift wrap a bottle of wine. Each package contains three Air Vases, printed one way on one side, and with a slightly different pattern and/or color on the other.
