designer kazuaki kawahara has playfully added an extra layer to everyday toilet paper with his packaging design that re-imagines the form as a selection of tropical fruits. kawahara conceived this idea from japanese companies and stores, who often give a roll of toilet paper to customers as a novelty gift and a sign of appreciation. with this, the ‘fruits toilet paper’ was born and the cylindrical form beautified, with aims to bring a smile to anyone who sees or receives it.

the vibrantly printed paper arrives as a rectangular sheet and by wrapping and finished off by stuffing the ends into the center, the characteristic appearance of the fruits is recognized. the results see a three-dimensional depiction of a cross-section of either a kiwi, strawberry, watermelon or orange.
