IE-Tag by Naruse-Inokama

IE-Tags come in little bundles, much like post-it notes. However, unlike post-it notes, they are shaped like little houses. This is because IE-Tags are made from recycled lumber and the memory of the source of material is reflected in its new incarnation as adhesive tabs.

IE-Tags are creative because they take material that would have been wasted and not only find a new purpose for it, but manage to pay homage to what it used to be. This creates an awareness that materials are something that can have histories, and that their usefulness can extend beyond first-use.
