One Fold – One Love!

It’s funny how an introduction to a certain design, technique, fold, skill or material can lead to an obsession with (in my case) a certain origami fold pattern! Is it funny tho? Is it just what we do? Is it our way of working as designers? Do we see the potential in the simplicity of an engineered shape and explore it’s aesthetic potential!? Well, for me, if it hadn’t been for the DEAF 2012 workshop that I attended last year I don’t think I’d be so obsessed with this particular origami fold! I have several people to thank for that – Meg Grant, Anja Hertenberger, Leonie UrffFlorian Horsch and Mika Satomi.

Before I had the pleasure of meeting the talented individuals above I had started here

Then as a team we arrived here –

And since then I’ve used the same fold again and again and again! This is just one textile sample under four different conditions that appears as different colours. Still… so much more I could do with this!
