I have designed series of products that are inspired by gift-wrapping. Wrapping is only for special occasions and a wrapped gift should feel special when you receive it. But the lifetime of the wrapping material is usually cut short by people opening the present. Through this exhibition, I would like to preserve these wrapping materials with lacquer to produce a permanent product.
