.ORI Stool by Jakub Piotr Kalinowski Playing around with origami, designer Jakub Piotr Kalinowski came up with a cool stool design that leaves no doubt as to its biggest influence. “Use of a bending and cutting method allowed to satisfy main design assumption: simplicity and lost manufacturing costs, by dint of that the mass production is possible.”
Magnets sewn into the fabric of this curtain/window shade by designer Florian Kräutli make it possible to easily move the curtain into practically endless shapes. It’s almost like having a constantly changing art exhibit as part of your home furnishings. It’s just a concept, but the design would make any origami enthusiast eager to try out new designs.
As its name suggests, the Origami Chair translates the folding paper language to a sharp, geometric, metal seating solution. Through a minimal number of folds, a three-dimensional structure designed to cradle the human body. The structure is supported by a metal pipe, perfectly bended to follow the shape created by the folds. #YankoDesign #Furniture #Chair
