Character and paper, paper and character.
Through the special method of paper folding to make the covert from paper to character, this is feasible for the Chinese character that with long history and complicated.
Free desktop app to design and create abstract origami:
I was so impressed by the art of folding techniques developed by forerunners that I stepped out into the world of origami. The software ORI-REVO presented here was developed for the purpose of exploring new origami figures by using a computer. The shapes generated with ORI-REVO are based on the surface of revolution. Not only shapes similar to packages for cakes we sometimes see, but also shapes which have curved surfaces are designed with this software. The shapes include that of several artworks known as Chris K. Palmer’s PolyPouches, Jeannine Mosely’s Bud, and Robert J. Lang’s Rimpot which are published ahead of my development. I would like to show my respect for these pioneers. Geometrically artistic figures will be rediscover and newly-discover through trials.
The above photos are some of examples designed with this tool. You can see other beautiful examples on the author’s Flickr.
Here is a demonstration video of the application in use:
Watching You - Origami Chair
Created from paper sheets of identical pieces. From designboom:
At the international furniture fair singapore 2012 the tokyo-based firm koji sekita design presented their project ‘watching you’ within the young talent zone ‘platform’. composed of paper sheets, the cardstock is scored and folded in a zigzag pattern. Each identical piece is then joined, creating the form of a chair. the strength of the seating object comes from the honeycomb pattern generated from the assembling the individual parts. Due to the flexible nature of the construction, any length of chair or bench can be produced. The accumulation and replication found in the manufacturing of ‘watching you’ is a signature of sekita.
