This is Nick Robinson’s XYZmbe, a 6 part model that shows the intersections of the X, Y and Z planes with a curious twirly intersection. Read more…
Life is a delicate balance, kind of like being on a tightrope way above the ground in the bigtop. Balance is important, lots of things effect balance: Work, life, play, people, things that all take their toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]
Revisiting a fold I achieved 3 years ago, I was struck with the dramatic lighting caused by an accidental reflection on our wooden floor and resultant shadow: You know when you see something amazing and cannot quite believe it was you who made it? I seem to be surrounded with such moments.
Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

David Huffman is a bit of an origami enigma it seems – he pioneered a bunch of tessellations and surface corrugations and seems to be one of the first to explore curved creases and their bizarre effects on flat sheets: This is is “Arches” tessellation, an intriguing offset brick valley folded grid that then has […]
There has been a lot of talk in the media about people demonstrably doing the wrong thing, over a really long period of time. Interesting that one of the defences offered was that they were a “sitting duck” in the post-weinstein era. Regardless, a backyard should be a safe place to play: This is Henry […]
This charming 6-piece modular cube is designed by Francesco Mancini and is included in his booklet “Mancinerie”, which I think I purchased from the BOS shop online: Each face is a twisted square. Folded from A5 sheets, the pre-creasing is pretty easy and the twist is satisfying.
