"airvase"TORAFU ARCHITECTS Inc.
When I first saw the "airvase", it was an item that I could not understand because I had no idea how to use it.
On the other hand, I felt very comfortable with the free molding body.
On the day of the event, I remember wondering whether CIBONE, a lifestyle shop, would handle it.
However, the "airvase" gradually began to sell and became a big hit.
It is no exaggeration to say that the "airvase" is an epoch-making item that brings out new needs in a new product genre.
At first glance, it is an item that does not have practicality, but will satisfy people's sensibilities.
I often brought the "airvase" with me as a perfect souvenir on overseas business trips.
This item, which turns a piece of paper into a phantasmagoric three-dimensional object, was a surprise and the pride of Japan's meticulous technology.
