Back to basics

Ki no Kami paper — the result of a collaboration between the Shiodome Innovation Studio (a creative unit that teams Japan's leading advertising agency, Dentsu, and Keio University's Shonan Fujisawa Campus with various creators) and the PaPaCo Yoshino wooden-toy maker — is designed to give kids some eco-friendly fun.

Conceived by art director and graphic designer Masahiko Nagasawa, Ki no Kami, which is perfect for origami and fashioning paper planes, is made from Japanese cedar and cyprus wood-thinnings from the Yoshino region, Nara Prefecture.

These should pop up in selected shops around the city very soon, but they are also stocked at all branches of NADiff. A pack of five sheets (each 145 mm x 145 mm) costs ¥840.
