Tissue paper is an item many people use in their everyday lives. If you buy boxes, you can just use them directly from the box. However, if you care about appearances, you can buy covers that fit over the box or put tissues directly in a separate case to turn it into home decor.

Japanese creator ミチル Michiru (@mitiruxxx), who has been known to design things like okonomiyaki pencil sharpners and kotatsu keycaps, posted his own tissue case design on his Twitter account recently.

Here is the actual case:

"A tissue case that turns into an iceberg."

In Michiru's design, you can see tissue paper contained in a translucent, light blue case.

With the tissue sticking out, it looks just like a cross-sectional reproduction of an iceberg floating in the sea. There's even a polar bear on the surface to make the illusion complete.

Michiru's clever design elicited many comments, such as:

  • "I really want it so bad. I wish it was available as a commercial product!"
  • "The design is nice, but I think it's also great that you can check how much tissue paper you have left!"
  • "The idea is very interesting.... I could see it as a work of art."

This tissue paper case with an iceberg motif went viral. The post garnered over 261,000 likes and 35,400 retweets at the time of writing.

Just having a tissue case like this in your room could even make you feel just a bit cooler, which is a great idea for the warmer months of the year.
