Something so simple can bring so much pleasure to an artist…or in this case, even an Accounts Receivables cubicle monkey with odd packaging needs. The Or-Ita is a new tool created by Makoto Orisaki ,a Japanese “inter design artist”. But what does this Or-Ita tool do? Well it simply perforates cardboard. And what’s the point? Because it allows cardboard — one of the most ubiquitous and cheapest materials around — to be easily folded, sculpted and manipulated into different shapes and designs. Simple, yet brilliant. In order to celebrate such an incredibly simple tool, Orisaki organized a gallery for the big debut of the Or-Ita. The art show consisted of six designers who used this brand new device to create clever and original works of art — showing off the many uses you can get out of the Or-Ita if you just simply think outside the cardboard box.
