Exhibitions | TAKEO PAPER SHOW 2001 - Shiroi Kami(White Paper)

TAKEO PAPERSHOW 2001 白い紙 本質から未来へ

This is where everything begins.

White is the starting point for paper, and it is also the starting point for imagination, as a blank sheet of paper inspires limitless creativity.
On Floor 1, 6 creators active in different genres attempted to convey the attraction, interest, and wonder of paper from one of two points of departure:
Light and penetration from the essence (nature, properties) of paper
Variations of White
In the Hall on Floor 3, under 8 themes, up-and-coming creators exhibit new paper products that utilize the essence (nature, properties) of paper and exude a sense of the future.
* Business and venue names are those used at the time of the event.
