PAPER & TRIAL is a series of exhibitions on paper, design, and experimentation.
The second exhibition features TAMASHIKI, a Japanese-style fine paper with watermark patterns
that launched in 1969 and underwent an update in 2018. In addition to product samples that use
TAMASHIKI, the exhibition displays mockups of rigid boxes and proposes applications of TAMASHIKI
in packaging. Designer Akiko Masunaga trials her innovative ideas, exploring new possibilities for
this fine paper by bold use of silkscreen printing to partly conceal the watermark patterns.
