Event space  “A world woven with paper and color—airvase 120 COLORS”
 
 
An airvase is a paper object that can be made into different shapes as if molding air.
The paper is thin and light yet has enough strength when pulled into shape to stand alone.
It can be morphed into different shapes by pulling and pushing it. Two new airvase products
are now available that make use of NT RASHA fine paper, which boasts a broad variety of
colors—airvase 120 COLORS, which allows you to choose any of NT RASHA’s 120 colors,
and airvase 24 COLORS, which provides you with a selection of 24 colors. You can create
surreal shapes of paper and color by layering two or more colorful airvases together.
Enjoy airvases by selecting them in your favorite colors and using them like drawing paper
to draw pictures or like origami to make shapes.
 
- airvase 120 COLORS (1 vase) 350 yen + tax
- airvase 24 COLORS (24 vases) 3,500 yen + tax
