Origami Pleats

Fabric, I think is the next best material that can emulate what paper can do with origami. You can still fold with thick or thin fabric and yield very dramatic results. This polyester hand-pleated textile is really lovely – because of the soft material and simple folds, romantic- for its pastel colors and practical – […]

Typogami by Calango

Typogami is an animated typeface by Calango of Amsterdam. There’s a neat video that is worth your while. Watch how the letters fold into beautiful letterforms. There’s a deep satisfying feeling I get watching flat surfaces transform into something new. I guess that’s why they call it innovation.

Cobra and other stunning origami animals

Good Tippers Give the Gift of Origami

I never know if the tip I leave at a restaurant goes to my server, the entire group of servers or the restaurant. If I’m able to correctly follow the tricks from the Dollar Origami book, the origami model might entice my server to stealthily keep the tip, which will ensuring the tip I leave [...]

The Glow Technique for Origami Bonsai

If you’re after “the glow”, consider Origami Bonsai by Ben Coleman. It might not be the skin glow technique, but the origami glow technique might be just as promising. What exactly is the glow-fold technique? They’re diagrams that include glow-fold overlays, which make them much easier understand. The glow-fold technique will be a valuable aid to [...]

Fluffy: Cute new cat how-to video

To continue the origami how-to video fun, here’s a new one from my partner Ioana Stoian showing how to fold a cute origami cat designed by Roberto Gretter and Ioana during the Polish origami convention earlier this year.

Origami Masks and Tessellations by Joel Cooper

Paper artist Joel Cooper folds these astounding masks and tessellations from single pieces of paper. Given the right conditions I might be expected to fold a piece of paper in half, and on a good day even into fourths, but I simply can’t fathom the patience and understanding required to transform paper into three-dimensional objects [...]

The 36-year-old Pétremant uses complicated origami folds and humble paper clips to keep the tiny sculptures in place, then photographs them for posterity. The large-format prints are on view this month at the Festival Circulation(s) in Paris. On [...]
