It is hard not to fall in love with the sculptural lines of Laura Kishimoto's furniture designs. Even if they are not necessarily up to someone's personal taste, appreciating the sculptural quality of each piece would only be natural. They are more like works of art than pieces of furniture, after all. Unsurprisingly, Laura Kishimoto's designs are inspired by a particular artform: origami.
Laura Kishimoto, a senior design student in the Department of Furniture Design at the Rhode Island School of Design, was president of the Origami Club in high school, so it clearly plays a big part in her life. Nevertheless, she writes, "Geometry is both a tool and a crutch in my design process. I find it impossible to create an original idea without some foundation to build upon."
