airvase LUCKY LUCKY
by ASAO TOKOLO
This is a paper bowl that envelops air. It is possible to create various shapes by pulling it in different directions. The paper is thin and light, but when expanded it is rigid and strong enough to stand alone.
Enjoy artist Asao Tokolo’s creative patterns in 3D. A pattern with three types of ‘fuku,’ the kanji character for luck. We hope it brings you good luck!
