disposable tissue holder


This tissue paper holder, made from recycled paper pulp was awarded in the Muji design competition 2014. There were no tissues in the Muji product line at the time, and this tissue holder was created to fit with Muji's design philosophy: the tissue holder is recycled, refillable and recyclable. Taking a cue from milk cartons, this tissue box considers the point of disposal. It has a simple and functional shape which is easy to pick up and view the contents. When no longer in use, it is easy to recycle. For the time being the product remains a prototype, but it may be developed for commercial sale in the future. The technique for making paper is part of our heritage that was passed down through generations, but more research into paper pressing is needed for it to go into production.
