Designed by Atelier Oï in collaboration with Gifu Prefecture and the Gifu Federation of Paper Industries, Honminoshi Garden is a modular flat-pack mobile made with one of the oldest Japanese papers. "Honminoshi" paper owes its superior quality to the pure river water used to wash the long mulberry fibers. This 1,300 year old paper making method is safeguarded and passed down through generations.
Minoshi Garden is an interpretation of the mysterious spirit of Japanese landscapes. Akin to the light and shadow play of screens in Japanese houses, the translucent nature of multiple geometric origami elements project serenity into any space.
