SPACE PAPER#02

We chose the symbol of a flower to illustrate the feature subject “gift” of the Space Paper #2. Flowers are used as a gift item from ancient times. For Japanese people, the traditional small alcove called Tokonoma (lit: floor/bed + space) had been a sacred space for hanging scrolls and flower arrangement. It reflects the beautiful philosophy of enjoying the present moment through seasonal flowers and paintings. But by modernizing homes, this special space tends to disappear. We wanted to reanimate this singular experience and promote the function of the tokonoma in the modern spaces, so we created the Mobile Tokonoma Kit that combines artwork and fragrance. A vivid illustration of flowers by Artist Nishi Yudai decorates the cover, in which a fragrance card with messages from NN members is inserted, to form an unprecedented perfumed freesheet. From the design policy of creating multi-dimensional spaces, we challenged to give shape to intangible experiences and notions. You can take this art piece anywhere and enjoy it, at home or at your office.
