Takizawa Apple Card Holder

Regular price $120 Unit price  per 

Description:
This playful card holder is made of "Paper-Wood," an innovation from Takizawa Plywood. Made of three stackable wooden pieces, you can insert cards or memos in-between the wooden pieces for an unforgettable, quirky addition to your desk or office space.   "Paper-Wood" is made with colorful, recycled paper and veneer layers, an innovation by Takizawa Plywood. Plywood is often thought of as a cheap and throw-away material, but this bright card holder is an example of Takizawa's transformative innovation. Unlike painted wood, the colorful paper lines will never fade or flake off. 

Variation:
Each piece is handmade, and there may be some color variation throughout the "paper-wood". Each piece will have a slightly different grain and cross-section of plywood.

Takizawa Plywood, is located in Hokkaido, Japan. They are the first wood designers to develop “Paper-Wood,” a plywood made from recycled color paper and layered veneer. All of the wood was grown locally in Hokkaido. “Paper-Wood” has a colorful cross-section surface with beautiful aesthetic expressions absent from conventional plywood. This material has been used in numerous buildings and interiors by renowned designers and architects. It received the Good Design Award in 2010.
