Japanese company Triad is well-regarded in its home country for memo pads that hides 3D shapes like violins and boats; the latest designs feature famous Japanese structures.
Each “Omoshiroi Block” (Japanese for “Interesting Block” or “Fun Block”) features a meticulous, laser-cut design embedded inside, with different iterations hosting different structures. Recognizable icons like Tokyo Tower, Osaka Castle and Asakusa Temple appear within, only revealed as the sheets are torn away. “Omoshiroi Blocks” offer over 100 sheets of paper apiece, meaning that it’ll take some time to fully reveal each creation.
Over on Triad’s Instagram, the company has explained that the “Omoshiroi Blocks” are currently sold out and its website is down, but stay tuned for updates. Meanwhile, take a look at Frank Gehry‘s upcoming Santa Monica-based build, Ocean Avenue Project.
