While we were mulling the theme of crumpled paper (or Tyvek) being employed in novel and useful ways, we stumbled on Japanese design studio Naoya Matsumoto Design‘s use of crumpled tracing paper to transform a Japanese gallery in Osaka into a cozy pop-up bar. Ahhh, a swell, inexpensive new decorating material we hadn’t thought of: like a sheer, crisp fabric that can be lit in wondrous ways. We discovered you can buy tracing paper by the roll in a variety of widths.
