806: (256/365) The Gift that keeps Giving

Posted by wonko on September 13, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

‘Tis marking season (I am a teacher) and I hate marking – do not get me wrong, I love designing assessment, just hate having to mark it, especially under ridiculous deadlines: This is Xiaoxian Huang’s gift box – a delicate little fold that I had to modify heavily to get the lid to fit given I […]

Time is short, this fold is cute: A rather lovely triangle box designed for David Brill’s wedge flexicube.

785: (235/365) Pentagonal Masu

Posted by wonko on August 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

A Masu (or box) was traditionally square and used to measure rice in Japanese kitchens. These days, masu are typically used to sip Sake out of: Having mastered David Brill’s Square Masu, I thought it time to try the pentagonal one. Apparently the pentagonal masu exists only in Origami circles – this makes sense as […]

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.

760: (210/365) Akiko Yamanashi’s Scallop Box

Posted by wonko on July 29, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean |

To celebrate the 201st fold in this challenge, I was looking for a shellfish-based fold – not sure why but there you go: Leafing through a Tanteidan Convention book, I came across a “Scallop Box” design designed by Akiko Yamanashi.

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.

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.

729: (179/365) A Whole Lotta Love

Posted by wonko on June 28, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Searching for daily folds, O came across an interesting 6 part modular cube that has much development potential: each face features a colour changed heart but I imagine that with a little inventiveness you could fashion diamonds, spades etc, or other things as the basic module solves the problem of liberating colour-changed flaps rather nicely.

702: (152/365) Burning Down The House

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

I have been a fan of Talking Heads pretty well as long as it was possible to be one. “Burning down the house” remains one of the great songs of all time: This is Martin Wall’s “Matchbox”, an ingenious model folded from a single, much tortured, piece of paper. A lovely little life-size matchbox, folded […]
