Aomori, the northernmost prefecture of the island of Honshu, is famous for having the largest accumulation of beech trees in Japan and for a unique technique using the wood from them to create amazing items. Bunaco, a company from Aomori's Hirosaki City, has become synonymous with this technique, designing and producing items of all conceivable shapes – like the incredible oval of the Swing Tissue Box, arguably the best-designed tissue box you have ever seen!
The award-winning Swing Tissue Box is 28.5 x 16.5 x 11 cm (11.2 x 6.4 x 4.3"), which means it can house any standard tissue box. Just pop the side panel open, insert the tissues, and pull them out from the opening on the top. It comes in four colors (black, dark brown, camel brown, and natural) but the material is the same: a thin tape made of 100% Aomori beech wood, twisted and bent to the unique oval shape that feels right at home in any space. Traditional craftsmanship meets top-tier design in this unique, organic product!
