Paper trail

A friend introduced me to this origami blog, dedicated to all things origami related and inspired. (view it here) I LOVE its content!!!

Ana Hagopian, a jewelry designer from Barcelona. Her pieces are so delicate and remind me of fruits and flowers (doesn’t the above necklace look like raspberries?! *slurps*)

Well-thought and well-constructed, these bags by Ferry Meewisse from his line Frrry fold away and store flat. With seams and crease lines coinciding, can you say Genius!

Don’t know how much you can store in a Chloe alligator clutch like that. But who cares!!! i love it! (:

André Lima’s collection was compared and contrasted against possible design inspirations (and who knew you could fold paper and make it look like a crab!!!)

You can see the rest of the compare/contrast series here.

Marloes ten Bhomer is the mastermind behind these delicious shoes. It SHOWS that a lot of research and experimenting went into the materials, forms and construction methods.

(i want!!!!)

Last but not least… this series by Taketori BLOWS MY MIND! I think that the gloss of the paper makes it all the more realistic.

I think that if there was an origami heaven, it’d look like that. (:

In my geometry class, we’re currently doing a project on origami, so we watch a video saying how it took only until the the twentieth century for someone to apply mathematics and science to the art to make more complicated designs.
There’s also something about four basic rules, but I’m far too lazy to remember what it was about…
