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 […]

Tomoko Fuse is a living legend in the Origami Community, her designs are numerous, intricate, ingenious and challenging to fold: This is a 12 part modular with double-locks, frilly bits and framed holes in each face.

648: (98/365) Floral Vase

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, domestic |

It is rare that a simple bit of geometry is so lovely but this floral pot combines glorious proportion and an efficient use of the sheet: A simple(ish) twirl causes the vase shape. I must work out how to fold this without the pre-creasing scars as I think this would look beautiful in large format […]

644: (94/365) Picnic at Hanging Rock

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

While in regional Victoria, in the vicinity of the Macedon Ranges, it seemed wrong to leave Hanging Rock off our agenda. Back in the 70’s, there was an important Australian movie made called “Picnic at Hanging Rock”: A fiction/mystery, it involved the mysterious disappearance of some school girls at the rock, after they had a […]

642: (92/365) No Luck Involved

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

This fold was folded on our 34th wedding anniversary, chosen because a long and happy relationship is not reliant on luck: This dice is clever is a little obscure – rather than traditional dots each face has a partial coverage of colour.

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

Any self-respecting Nirvana fan is familiar with the song “Heart Shaped Box”: I was listening to some vintage Nirvana on Spotify and that simple song inspired this simple box.

I seem to have an endless fascination with clever origami boxes – this one caught my eye and I knew I needed to try and fold it: Anna Kastlunger has designed a nifty scalable box with an integrated hinged lid that is delightful and possibly useful for precious things.

557: (7/365) Jun Maekawa’s Borromean Cube

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Most Tanteidan magazines start with a section that deals with modular folding. I was surprised to find a modular cube designed by Jun Maekawa, along with a bunch of variations. With cursory research, it appears “borromean” relates to interlocking shapes, and this cube has “ribbons” of colour that weave in among each other in an […]
