Torafu Architects: Air Vase

Move over, Ikea: Torafu Architects take the flat pack to an inventive new level.

Founded a decade ago, Tokyo-based Torafu Architects have made a name for themselves with their interior design, but it is their latest product - a paper container - which has caught our eye. The whimsically named 'Air Vase' is created by pulling on a flat pack with perforations: both the packaging and the containers themselves are beautiful, and come in a range of inventive designs.
