Who’s doing the folding?


  • When the hands are busy, the heart is at peace.

The project came into being in September 2016 after a period of research into the possibilities of paper, experimenting with different consistencies, shapes, textures and colours

The idea arose out of an urge we felt to work with our hands and make creativity more tangible and personal, moving away from bits and pixels.

We’ve taken our inspiration from nature, taking on the challenge of turning the organic forms that surround us into polyhedral figures.

The result of our research work is this collection of paper figures: three different models designed as a fun folding and assembling activity for you to do at home. Are you up for it?
