Tokyo firm Naruse Inokuma Architects created these pads of page markers from demolished wooden houses.
Called IE-tag, the notes come in blocks shaped like gabled houses and can be arranged to represent a little village on a desk or along a book's edge.

This is a tag made of paper from wooden building waste.
In regenerating wooden building waste into paper, rather than discarding or burning it for energy, we propose the entire process flow up to the final product.
This tag is shaped as a house, retaining the memory of the material when it was part of a house.
When several are arranged together, they form a town. What had originally been part of townscape now creates a small version of townscape on your desk.
