Rather than tossing out your Post-Its once they’ve been used, why not create a masterpiece like the ‘Post-It Structures’ exhibit by Yo Shimada. Okay, well maybe these 30,000 Post-Its are far from used, but they are a great use for the familiar, colorful pieces of paper.

The Post-It Structures project was made possible through the hard work of both Yo Shimada from Tato Architects, and art students from the Kyoto University of Art and Design. While on their own these vibrant Post-Its appear flimsy, when they are all glued together they really do form a sound structure. The must-see Post-It Structures project will be displayed at the Artzone Gallery located in Kyoto City, Japan.

Implications - The use of unusual materials and bright colors can be a winning combination, as the Post-It-Structures exhibit demonstrates. Companies looking to create spectacle displays should consider using lots of inexpensive materials and bright colors to produce cost-effective, yet eye-catching displays.
