A joint project between the French fashion house Hermes and ecological architect Shigeru Ban, the Hermes + Shigeru Ban Pavilion is a special exhibit part of Tokyo's Design Tide Exhibition.

The project is branded by Hermes to promote its line of home products and is a modular pop-up structure that can be completely taken apart and put back together. Shigeru Ban, a world renowned Japanese architect who specializes in environmentally friendly design and has created a number of recycled cardboard homes and temporary shelters, has made the Hermes + Shigeru Ban Pavilion completely out of paper, something that is his signature.

Inside the luxury pop-up structure, furniture and other home design objects by Hermes are featured. Visitors were encouraged to walk around and sample the space. Stats for Luxury Paper Pop-Ups Trending: Older & Warm
