Luke Dahlen: Ori

Created by Swedish designer Lukas Dahlén, bright suspensions "Ori" is inspired by the art of origami. Presented at the Salon del Mobile in Milan, they consist of copper foil pleated how Japanese folding.

On this project, Lukas Dahlén states:

"Sheet metal have the same characteristics as paper when it comes to folding. After a lot of experimenting with paper and watching many origami instruction films I managed to understand the technique and construct a pattern of my own.

A lampshade that reflects the light downwards with a light coloured by the golden brass.  The metal is cut with photo-etching, which also cuts halfway through the sheet to create the creases for the folding. A different pattern is used for each side of the sheet to allow the metal to fold in the desired direction."
