Papercraft

  • Origami Home

    The Origami Home takes a high-design approach to the traditional Japanese art form to enable you to create the ultimate 'designer doll's house' made from paper. Origami expert Mark Bolitho explains how to make furniture and accessories for every room in the home, including armchairs and sofas, dining tables and chairs, a four-poster bed, a bookcase and a selection of designer-style lamps.

    The models are presented within room sets, each with its own interior style – from Shaker to Scandinavian, country to contemporary. Variations demonstrate how the choice of paper – floral, geometric, striped, pictorial or plain – influences the style of the finished piece, and will inspire you to create room sets in any style you choose. For each room set there are step-by-step folding instructions for the key pieces featured in the room.

    The back of the book holds a pocket containing a selection of origami papers to get you started. The mix of furniture designs, along with the unique and fun presentation style, will ensure that this book appeals to anyone with a passion for design and interiors, as well as origami and craft enthusiasts.

  • Paper Home

    With a distinctly graphic aesthetic, Esther Thorpe offers a thoroughly modern take on the art of paper folding with step-by-step instructions for 15 stunning origami projects for the home.

    Basing her work on simple, traditional shapes and techniques, Esther creates simple, striking items that appear much more intricate than they are. The book contains projects with varying levels of difficulty. If you consider yourself an origami novice, it might be worth trying slightly simpler projects, like the Triangular Box or Star Garland. These simpler projects are designed to ease you in gently, and many of the items require you to fold multiples of the same shape – an ideal way to practice your skills.

    Mastering projects that use a similar origami technique is also a good way to develop your folding ability. Projects that lend themselves well together are the Photo Holder, Cube (in the Geometric Mobile) and Vase, which are all based on sonobe origami modules. Make paper cranes into a child's mobile or string tiny stars onto a garland before moving on to a functional set of 'feltigami' storage baskets and the more ambitious, and incredibly impressive, concertina lampshade.
