The razor’s design is inspired by origami and milk carton packaging. Consumers receive the blade and flatpack, water-resistant handle, which they have to fold into shape themselves.
“Paper Razor aims to transform the razor into a plastic-free item and reduce plastic emissions,” Kai tells dezeen.com. “We adopted paper for the handle and metal for the blade and head. It is made of 98% paper and two per cent paint. Only the blade part, including the entire head, is made of metal.”
Paper Razor will be launched on April 22—Earth Day.
