Tessellated Origami Sculptures by Goran Konjevod 

paper-1

Origami artist Goran Konjevod brings an extensive background in mathematics and theoretical computer science into the folds of his elegant paper sculptures, textured abstract forms that twist, spiral, and cascade. Konjevod practiced origami as a hobby for many years, usually folding the designs of others until 2005 when he began producing some of his original designs. Most of his pieces involve tessellations where repetitive geometric designs are carefully folded to create patterns within the paper. (via Strictly Paper)

Recently Konjevod’s work has been collected and displayed in exhibitions like the recent 8th Annual Sanchez Art Center 50|50 Show and with the Ohio Craft Museum. You can find more work on his Instagram.

Polygons: A Versatile Measuring Spoon Inspired by Origami Folds 

poly-1

Instead of juggling a ring of measuring spoons while cooking in the kitchen, what if standard measurements were combined into a single flat tool that adjusted at the pinch of your fingers. Is this a problem that needs a solution? Perhaps. Currently funding on Kickstarter, Polygons is a rather ingenious looking measuring spoon tool that combines four fractional measurements (in teaspoon and tablespoon models) into a flat tool that folds like a piece of origami paper. The gadget is made from recyclable plastic and the designers claim it can “flex for 100,000 cycles without failure.” Learn more here. (via Twisted Sifter)

Origami Bird Lights by Umut Yamac 

light-1

The Perch Light by London-based architect and designer Umut Yamac sits perfectly at the intersection of form and function: the bird-shaped light is made to look like a folded origami creation that’s illuminated from the inside. Made from actual synthetic paper, the elegant light is counterbalanced and rocks back and forth at the slightest touch or disturbance in the air. Yamac originally designed the light in 2014 as a limited edition of 20, but recently created a new chandelier-style configuration called the Perch Light Family for Moori that launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Mademoiselle Maurice (previously here and here) recently produced the mural “The Lunar Cycle” in collaboration with the French Mathgoth Gallerie, a temporary piece that pays tribute to the hundreds of residents who were temporarily uprooted due to the upcoming demolition of the building. Composed of 15,000 colorful origami birds, the piece forms the cycles of the moon against the dark background of the wall and covers over 21,000 square feet of space—making it the largest urban mural ever created in Paris. Each origami is painted after folding using a solution deemed “Maurigami” by Mademoiselle Maurice, making the pieces nearly indestructible. You can see more of her original origami-based murals on her Instagram and Facebook. (via Faith is Torment)

It’s been a few years since we last featured French street artist Mademoiselle Maurice (previously here and here) and we were delighted to catch up with her new artfully placed pieces on the streets and buildings of Singapore, Corsica, Sweden, and Italy. Arranged both haphazardly and in detailed arrangements, Mademoiselle Maurice adheres thousands of brightly colored origami works to unexpected places, decorating everything from the ceilings of national art museums to the worn sides of ancient buildings. You can see more of her origami works on her Instagram and Facebook. (via Wooster Collective)
