Torafu Architects: Air Vase

‘air vase’ by tokyo-based torafu architects is a paper bowl that envelops air.
you can freely change its shape by molding it into the form of a small bowl or vase according to one’s intended ‘usage’.
the thin and lightweight paper from which it is made, gives strength and resistance to the bowl.
colors on each side of the paper create a different impression depending on the various angles from which you look at it.

    Interesting but didnt you realised they did not put any flowers in the vase? wonder hows the real structural strength of it…

  2. Maybe one of the reasons for not having flowers is because the objective of the vase is according to one’s intended ‘usage’. Maybe it isn’t really meant to be a vase. It’s more like having fun in sculpturing its forms. 🙂
