280: Infinity Cubed

Posted by wonko on October 7, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Now I got thinking about infinity, as you do, and that I could beat it by cubing it, then a modular idea struck – make an infinity out of cubes: So I began collecting business cards – white on the back, and performed 2 simple bends (and ONLY 2) per card – then explored ways […]

199: Lego Block

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Now I like a good challenge, but this was a little beyond the pale: I have seen photos of this model less than half as big and I am buggered if I can work out how you could fold it that small as I struggled at this scale. A fascinating exercise in box pleating that […]

187: Spiral Box

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2011 in boxes |

Looking at the plethora of boxes I still have to fold, it is difficult to select just one. I chose this spiral box because the spiral on the lid is echoed in the construction of the bottom: A rectangular box (as opposed to square) that cleverly tucks away flaps inside itself to make a sturdy […]

166: A Vase

Posted by wonko on June 15, 2011 in boxes |

I like this container/vase a lot: It self-locks, is water tight and could be used … to … put things in I guess. the best bit is that you control the size of the base, and therefore the height of the thing – nice and useful for … things 😛

Looking at the options for the box for this month, I stumbled across a design For Fujomono’s hexagonal box and decided to give that a twirl, literally: A realtively simple fold that is stunningly beautiful – the hex swirl inside and out has a skirt that locks itself into the base – design genius that makes […]

133: Brill’s Bottle

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2011 in boxes, domestic |

I would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy: A fully formed container, neck, base, hollow and interesting I like this design, and was sure it would not work – forming the neck and pleating the base to seal it make it a very clever model indeed. Folded from the […]
