project

geografiaは印刷会社からの発信を目指した新しいプロジェクト。プロジェクトの企画とディレクション、デザインを担当した。
特殊印刷技術を使った組立式の地球儀を中心としたプロダクトのシリーズ。地球儀は、のりやハサミを使わずに、だれでも簡単に組み立てられるシステムになっている。

Geografia is a project initiated by a request of long-established Marumo Corporation - a company that is focused on using special printing techniques. Looking for new business opportunities, Marumo wanted to expand its horizons and create their own products by taking advantage of in-house technologies.
The product should provide a unique information experience while using their special printing technology. We proposed the idea of a paper globe and likewise the design. Geografia is found in several museum shops around the world.
