I’m loving the pieces in SIWA’s new 2012 collection, which includes wine bottle carriers, envelopes for small accessories and some lovely tote bags.
SIWA (previously) 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 – in Japanese – is also “washi” written backwards), and is made out of an original material that was engineered by the company.
The new products made from the faux-paper are on display at doinel in Aoyama through June 8th.
