Air Vase by Torafu Architects

Back in March Torafu Architects’ Air Vase debuted on dezeen to high acclaim. The highly versatile paper vessel, manufactured by the gods of paper, also known as kaminokousakujo, can be stretched and sculpted into a plate, vase or bowl. And now it is officially available! (1,260 yen for a set of 3)
You can watch a slightly intimidating video below to see how the vessel, which starts out as a flat disk, is sculpted into a preferred shape. What is beautiful about the vessel is that it has multi-colored sides, which change depending on your vantage point.
