Origami literally means "folding paper" in Japanese. The tradition of folding paper originated in Japan but has long histories in China and Europe as well. The basic traditions revolve around the ability to make forms using a single sheet of paper, without cutting or using glue. Furniture makers have taken inspiration from this traditional craft and made some outstanding pieces. The sharp edges yet organic forms make fantastic juxtapositions that create beautifully conceived forms.
