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.
Orilamp is battery-powered mood light. Designed in Toronto, it’s foldable and collapses, like a slinky. With an app, users can adjust brightness, set a timer and monitor battery life. When not in use, the lamp folds into a compact square.
