From Folded Metal Furniture to Responsive Wall Systems

 - Aug 16, 2012
Fans of papercraft and interior design will find themselves at home among these awesome and original origami furniture finds. The Japanese art of paper folding dates back hundreds of years, but the art of designing furniture that mimics the look of folded paper is relatively new. A shelf designed to look like it was folded 10 times may sound crazy, but it actually looks incredibly stylish.

The majority of these origami furniture finds are made using materials that are slightly sturdier than paper. That being said, there are a few lamps here that are made out of paper. No matter the material they're made out of, these furnishings pay homage to papercraft with their intricate and often confounding designs.
