Torafu Architects unveiled a stunning line of shape-shifting paper tableware at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair that is almost as light and transparent as the air that inspired it. Constructed from exceptionally thin yet durable paper, the pieces can be molded into bowls or vases of almost any size without breaking. The paper is printed with two different colors on each side, so the final form has a dynamic appearance that changes as it is viewed from various angles. Check out a few videos of the vase in action after the jump!
