Who isn’t fascinated by what one can do with origami. Origami comes from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”. And when you take a close look at the ‘TetraBox lamp‘ designed by Ed Chew, you can see what can be done by using origami. He uses cartons and then cuts them into strips, folds the strips into hundreds of pieces and are then put together without the use of any adhesives. The result is the TetraBox lamp that was the Grand Prize Winner at the Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition in May 2011.
Ed Chew has used the same origami module to create different lamp styles. Once again this is a great example of what can be done with discarded items, turning them into unique design objects. Another nice thing about this technique is that everyone can use it to create their own lamps. Well have a try, you can see here what to do.
