Japanese architect collaborated with Jean de Gastines to create a paper house pavillion for Hermès. It is structured with cardboard tubes woven with paper. The paper tube structure (PTS) was originally developed in order to build inexpensive and recyclable houses after the Great Kobe Earthquake in 1995. Hermès is showing its brand new contemporary interiors collection for the first time at the Salone del Mobile.
