The installation is a micro-architecture composed of a fascinating pure-white tunnel, 13 meters long and 5 meters wide, which surface is constituted by several bent strips of a special vulcanized paper, 1 mm thick.

The tunnel encloses Irori Kitchen, a kitchen and living-room system, made of bamboo panels and steel tubes, providing a great positioning flexibility as well as an extreme possibility to create different configurations.
