FAVINI wanted a paper visual book, and we designed a board game
FAVINI, the Italian fine paper manufacturer, approached us with a special problem. We were asked to design a sample book for their new cardboard line "Sumo". The difficulty with this project was that the material could not be bound into a "normal" book.
Enthusiastic about Japanese culture and full of uninhibited playfulness, this request came at just the right time: a sample book for SUMO, FAVINI's thick, strong and resistant cardboard. To bring the associations evoked by the product name graphically and haptically into the perfect format, we designed the sample book as KAMIZUMO - the popular paper variant of the Japanese cult sport. The result became a delightful tactile thing with which many a fierce fight can be fought out at the office desk.
