Object of Desire: Washi Paper Vase

June 8, 2017

Made of pleated washi paper, an expandable vase slips on like an elegant disguise to cover a nondescript glass or plastic container.

Designed by Hayashi Kougei, the Washi Paper Vase comes in several shapes. No matter which one you choose, “the beauty is in how the paper expands into forms that organically find their resting point in asymmetrical positions,” notes retailer Nalata Nalata.
