Pre-cut, post-use, and everlasting joy

Laser-cutting technology allows these memo pads, called the Omoshiroi blocks, to be pre-cut into models after use. Cleverly hidden inside these paper blocks are a grand piano, Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-dera temple, a nishikigoi carp, or a scenic path in a Japanese forest. After taking one home, the customer tears off pages and use them as memos, but an intricate sculpture composed of layers of carefully chosen colours will be gradually revealed along the stub from which an artwork will continue to interest and intrigue him or her. That’s how the aptly-named Omoshiroi block got its name, as “omoshiroi” means interesting in Japanese. TRIAD Inc., a Japanese architectural-model-maker-turned-designer is the mastermind of these cute and truly interesting objects.
