wasara biodegradable paper tableware from japan


wasara products by japanese design studio simplicity (shinichiro ogata) were exhibited as part of designboom's 'asia now' exhibition held at dwell on design in los angeles. 'sometimes we associate asia in general with copies of original designs that were conceived of elsewhere. this is unfortunate and often unwarranted. for the 'asia now' exhibition we were looking for truly unique work that is not too influenced by western styles.'

wasara elevates disposable tableware to a new level. the earth-conscious product is made from tree-free renewable materials: bamboo, reed pulp and sugar cane fiber and is fully biodegradable and compostable. the sturdy and simple designs fit comfortably into one's hand.
