Siwa | 紙和
It’s August and it’s Friday and I’m having lunch in central park and not coming back! But I wanted to leave you with some inspirational paper!
I saw these great images over at design hug. Siwa is a collaborative project between innovative Japanese paper company ONAO and renowned industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa (i.e. ± 0, MUJI CD Player). Siwa means wrinkle in Japanese (and is also “washi” written backwards in Japanese), and is made out of a new type of material, Naolon, which was engineered by the company.
The lineup of products includes tote bags, lighting, and reusable envelopes that look totally awesome.

Even their business cards are made out of the material.
