TAKEO PAPER SHOW 2000 「考える紙」

Commemorating TAKEO’s 100th anniversary and preparing for the 21st century with a vision of paper in the near future

Paper has been nurtured by interaction between mankind and nature, leaving behind a trail as humans and culture advanced together.
In addition to verifying that trail, we made positive proposals for new relationships between technology, design, and paper in the context of evolution in human senses and knowledge as we moved towards a new century that seemed likely to be led by technology.
