783: (233/365) Simple Money Box

Posted by wonko on August 21, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

I quite like the apparent simplicity of this design: Folded from a square split on the 1/3 line, larger piece making the base, smaller for the lid, this ingenious design neatly makes a moneybox, coin slot and all.

782: (232/365) Wedge Flex

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

Topologically convoluted geometric modulars confuse the brain – shapes that morph into different shapes in stable but seemingly unpredictable ways are fascinating: This is a wedge-flex – a modular hinged construction of a series of triangular prisms (wedges) that fold, bend, twist and re-align in interesting configurations.

781: (231/365) Naomiki Sato’s First Pentagonal Rose

Posted by wonko on August 19, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, geometry |

I am seriously attempting to perfect the “rose” form in Origami. In my mind, there is no better master of this flower than Naomiki Sato: I bought his book (and DVD) entitled “Rose” and am determined to work though the various forms presented therein. This is called his “first pentagonal rose” and I can see […]

777: (227/365) Icosahedral Prism

Posted by wonko on August 15, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So I was messing with a low-grade triangle grid and what to do with it (I often fold grids to keep my eye in) and came across a rather neat geodesic hemisphere that used a section of it: So I cut 2 the same size and proceeded to collapse – one fits inside the other […]

753: (203/365) Origami Lampshade

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I am clearly in the wrong business, if making money is the aim. Being slightly (well, I think it is healthy) obsessed with paper, when a new dealer arrives on the scene I take notice. A colleague asked if I knew of “The Paper Empire” – a new QLD outlet in Newfarm: I had not […]

749: (199/365) Oyster Box

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean, geometry |

David Mitchell is a legendary origami designer, responsible for countless geometric wrangles: This is an “Oyster Box” – a box that resembles a bivalve, that locks together rather satisfyingly and opens to reveal a spacious interior.

748: (198/365) Brill’s Square Silver Star

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Busy times indeed – perfect for folding a 12 piece modular: Fairly simple modules that sit over one, inside another adjacent module, locking fairly positively into swirls of 4 “petals”, you get a shape that describes a cube when you look just at the points.

744: (194/365) Wizard’s Hat

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry |

Anyone who has seen any of the “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” movies will recognise the profile of this hat: Gandalf the Grey wore a wondrous felt hat like this, Mike Luo’s “Witches Hat”.

740: (190/365) Rubic’s Cube

Posted by wonko on July 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry, wtf |

Long before there were “fidget spinners”, Pokemon and “Pogs” there was a craze that swept me away when it first hit the market. A Hungarian designer called Erno Rubic devised a cube, subdivided up into 3x3x3 cubies that all slid on each other in layers: I instantly had to have one (well, in truth I […]

734: (184/365) Cube from Thirds

Posted by wonko on July 3, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Sometimes you need to fold a modular, and sometimes that modular really needs to be a 12 part construction: This is “Cube from Thrids” designed by Tung Ken Lim, a simple windowed cube that works well with a 3-colour scheme.
