Japanese designer Kouichi Okamoto has made a tape cutter with a curved edge that he uses to create drip-like patterns (+ movie).
Okamoto designed the Liquid Tape Cutter as a tool for decorating walls and objects with lengths of sticky tape.
In the video, Okamoto first applies the tape from the top of the wall downwards, using the metal cutter to make a convex curve at the bottom.
He then sticks the remaining concave curve at the bottom of the wall and travels upwards.
Okamoto designed the tool for his own use at his studio, Kyouei Design, based in Shizuoka, Japan.
We previously featured a structure woven from kilometres of adhesive tape and an abandoned apartment where a wall, furniture and ornaments are covered by a layer of tape.
