Hokkaido, the northernmost prefecture in Japan, is known for paper production and woodworking. Takizawa Plywood celebrates its local industry by creating "paper-wood," a new 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.
