While origami is a fun pastime, what extends value to this lovely art form is when origami is applied to disciplines like fashion, technology, and architecture. There are two folds to this challenge – first, you’ll need to create the origami model itself and the second is to apply the origami model to an emerging or existing technology. We are delighted to see more origami inspired thinking, designs and applications pop up everywhere and our origami blog strives to curate the best and most original of them all. Some blog posts are original and some are curated from Yankodesigns, DesignMilk, DesignBoom, and many others – they are credited at the bottom of the blog post.
