ABOUT

Tissue paper which is a daily needs in your life, but it doesn’t look nice at your room. We solve the problem with our beautiful and brand new design TPH “Tissue paper holder”. Pick up paper from a package, and put the papers between the trays. That’s all how start to use. Reverse U-shaped form makes width shorter. Furthermore you can pick paper up very smoothly. It’s made by steel. That’s why you can also use as a post-it board with magnets. The upper body’s steel weight is 0.8t and the bottom one is 2.0t. Finding the selection of materials was the most difficult thing. The upper one is much lighter than bottom one, so you can pick a paper up very smoothly. This functional tissue paper holder fits anywhere such as an office room or a living room, and makes the place more beautiful.
