Cabbage Chair

March 24, 2008


The Cabbage Chair is created from a wrapped cylinder of pleated paper. A roll of this by-product paper was slit vertically, and a small nest of a chair was revealed by systematically peeling away each layer. Resins used during the original paper production process add strength and a bit of memory to the shaping process, while the pleats themselves give the chair elasticity and a springy cushioning. The Cabbage Chair has no internal structure or framework, nor is it assembled with nails, screws, or additional textile elements.

This polish pavilion to be at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai was design by architects Wojciech Kakowski, Marcin Mostafa and Natalia Paszkowska.

Their building is inspired by traditional polish folk art paper cut-outs. The team sought to create a ‘cultural ideogram’ that would signify the country of origin in an iconic way and focuses on exploring the importance of the personal experience between buildings and people.

Complex Origami

November 7, 2007

 

“If one isn’t an origami folder, it’s difficult to explain the process of conception through to the finished model. The creation process is similar to a scientific method. When designing a person, one begins with the assumption that the four corners of the paper will represent each hand and foot. From that general assumption, a “crease pattern” is developed that blueprints all the folds required for the model. These crease patterns may be modified while the model takes shape…”
Can you believe it? One paper…!

One Dollar Origami

July 15, 2007

 

From the artist “This is the side view of the new Koi fish. Notice the rounder head and more defined pectoral fins. All my works are original designs. They all use dollar bills with no cuts, no glue, and no tape. In response to everyone’s curiousity, the Koi fish is made with only one dollar.”

Beautiful pieces of origami from a Korean, all nicely done from a dollar note (the spider is 2 pcs of dollar notes i think). Click on the link to see more of the works.
