100 Examples of Origami Design

These Geometry-Infused Creations Pay Homage to the Japanese Art

— September 13, 2013 — Fashion
These examples of Origami design vary from conceptual fashions to practical furnishings and home accessories. Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, these modular designs often embody a conceptual aesthetic that is either mathematically complex or artfully sculptural.

These visually striking examples of Origami design often experiment with complex geometries and explore a variety of 3D forms. Whether used as witty beer-branding, showcased in an avant-garde photo editorial or displayed in a fun DIY home decor project, these dynamic creations push the limits of traditional design.

These various furnishings, fashions, marketing concepts and home decor accessories channel the ancient Japanese art of Origami. Finding beauty in multidimensional geometries, these inventive objects are unique thanks to their non-traditional approach to creativity.
