Designers are ever conscious that paper need certainly not be a two dimensional medium. The Kakine Screen proves this by expressing itself as a dynamic surface with discernible texture and depth. Yasutoshi Mifune of Japan created this complex room divider by cutting individual strips of the fine material and folding and wrapping them together with the help of fixing pins.

The result is a handsome homogenous lattice that allows areas of light penetration and obstruction. It can even be customized according to the repetition of different unique shapes to produce more intricate patterns. What's more, the Kakine Screen might look delicate, but it is actually fairly sturdy. In addition to serving as a space separator, the interior trellis can hold photographs and other lightweight items in its little offshoots.
