Origami Modern style !

September 17, 2010

We all used to play around with Origami as children. Simple folds from a single square

that turned into amazing animals, water bombs or those games where the movement of

a beak-shaped folded piece of paper with hidden writing could determine your fate.

Here are a few modern variations on this theme that caught my eye.

These featured on The Design Files from Japanese duo Cochae.

These are great fun and the creators at Mibo allow you to buy and

download the file and print them yourself.

This is a vintage pop up book from the site of Bird and Banner.

And for those of you who like folding on a greater scale, check out these lily pads

by Steve Messam as part of a commission by Tatton Park from May til September.

Also these beautiful tessellations, more here.
