32 Examples of Origami-Inspired Decor

From Minimalist Origami Sofas to Life-Sized Paper Animal Art

— September 18, 2015 — Art & Design
Origami-inspired decor is a more and more popular design method as the folds provide an excellent means for both style as well as strength. Creating both minimalist and complex designs, this folding art is no longer limited to just paper.

Functional furniture like the Origami Sofa as well as Martin Pitonak's Origami Coffee Table use the folded designs to create structure. Using origami for artistic inspiration rather than functionality is Erik Aberg's 'Ghostcube' -- a series of wooden blocks that can be twisted, folded and turned to create different interactive sculptures.

Not simply decor, origami-inspired design is literally shaping the world, seen also in engineering that utilizes the ancient Japanese concepts to maximize room for shipped items.
