Torafu Architects' message vase card is completely customizable and perfect for any occasion, depending what you choose to write on it. The Airvase Message Card is a paper vase that starts off as a colorful flat disk and in this state, you can write a message to someone you intend to present the vase or bowl to. Then, it's ready to send off in the mail without having to pack the vessel in a cumbersome or costly box.

When your recipient gets their envelope, they'll be able to see the handwritten message and enjoy it in 2D, as well as 3D when the disk is pulled upwards to take on the form of a wiry paper vase or bowl.
