Origami is a traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since evolved into a modern art form which inspires designs from couture catwalks, lighting and furniture.
The art of paper folding inspired Andre Lima ‘s 2009 fashion show, where his intricate folded designs dominated the catwalks and even inspired a number of other designers.
Our beautiful Origami mirrored lamp table is an example of Origami filtering into furniture design. The flat mirrored planes are angled as if the mirror itself has been folded like paper. This particular design is available with black or white edges, and retails at £139.99
The most popular Origami paper design is the Swan which initially inspired the design of our ORIGAMI mirrored console tables. In true Origami style the mirrored panels appear to be folded like the neck – the most elegant part of the swan.
The ORIGAMI small mirrored console table is also available with white or black edging and retails at £349.00.
The goal of the Origami art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculptures by the use of folding and sculpting techniques, but more importantly to make beautiful creations without glue.
Our White Gloss Ornaments like the Pippa Dachshund £19.99 or the Rhino £25.99 mimic the difficult origami art of animal making.
