The simplicity and purity of the material constantly question contemporary popular elements. In an era of over-design and information overload, it seems to call out to me, urging a return to essence, exploring the existential value between things. Design's purpose is not just innovation in form but achieving resonance with the soul, touching delicate and genuine emotions.

The exploration of paper has become a reflection on life and the meaning of existence for me. Paper, an item overlooked in daily life, how can it allow design to transcend visuals and reach the depths of the soul? This is a challenge for designers and also a process of seeking my answers.

Ezomatsu Craft Board

"Ezomatsu Craft Board" is a Japanese cardboard born from the cold winters of Hokkaido. This cardboard, a blend of recycled pulp and the distinctive spruce native to Hokkaido, not only mirrors the regional characteristics of winter but also reflects a thoughtful consideration of forestry resources.

The spruce of Hokkaido, known for its straight grain, is widely utilized in architecture and fine furniture. As part of windbreak forests, these trees are intimately connected to the local ecosystem. However, the leftover materials from furniture making, if not utilized effectively, represent a waste of these natural resources.

Through the collaborative efforts of "Kagaya Lumber," "Yamato Board Paper," "Morita Paper Container," and the design company "COMMUNE," "Ezomatsu Craft Board" has emerged as an innovative project. It transforms these unused premium materials into environmentally friendly cardboard imbued with the local spirit, making use of the material characteristics of spruce. Inspired by the boreal forests, it is crafted in three colors that resemble the structure where the bark wraps around the heartwood, presenting colors on each side of the paper to depict the natural landscapes of Hokkaido. This design allows users to experience the charm originating from a corner of Hokkaido when using the paper.
