smash

Smash is a specialized long-fiber non-woven polyester, a light and rip-proof product of Japanese advanced synthetic-fiber technology, that can be blown into unique shapes. Nendo applies this technique to create Japanese-style chochin paper-lanterns. Whenever there seems to emerge a new high-tech material, it arrives ‘camouflaged’ in a vintage design.
