Design Nori: Laser Cut Seaweed for Sushi #ArtTuesday
Design milk posted these incredible photos from Design Nori. You can read more about them on their Facebook page here.
Umino Hiroyuki of Umino Seaweed Shop paired up with foreign advertising agency I&S BBDO to create laser-cut, designer seaweed with intricate and detailed patterns. Hiroyuki has a strong family history in creating seaweed (his grandfather founded Umino Seaweed Shop), which is what inspired the idea for the Design Nori– it was a response to the decline in seaweed consumption in Japan.
While Umino Seaweed Shop sells all sorts of seaweed, Design Nori is made using seaweed sourced from the Sanriku area of Miyagu. It’s thicker, so it won’t crumble under the laser-cutting, has a nice luster, and doesn’t stick to other ingredients.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
