Origami is a popular way to celebrate anniversaries.
And to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Nissan Juke, they enlisted British paper artist Owen Gildersleeve to create a life-size origami of the SUV. Comprised of 2,000 folded pieces of paper, it took more than 200 hours to put together. It is built to the exact dimensions of the Juke. Talk about handmade! The paper SUV also features the same design elements that give the real-life Juke its distinct quality.

Last month, didja see Google’s logo shaped like origami? It’s not the first time Google shared their love of origami. In 2009, Vanessa Gould, Director of the Peabody Award Winning film Between the Folds and featured origami artists were invited to Filmmakers at Google to talk about origami – an amazing blend of art and science.

Last Sunday, I attended the International Contemporary Furniture Fair with my colleagues and found many beautiful origami inspired furniture and accessories design. One in particular that stood out was Kanshin Lamps. The lamp shades are made from paper mulberry and folded into simple and elegant origami, which reminds me of Yuko Nishimura’s work.
