Miscelleneous Paper Engineering
In addition to the Pop-ups and Packaging on the other pages within this section, I have also undertaken projects in other areas of paper engineering.
However -- after much soul-searching -- I have decided not to show images of these projects. This is because many of the projects were dye-cut as kits for the Israeli Origami Center or hand-made as prototypes, with a view to eventually marketing them commercially and I'm afraid that unscrupulous people in far-flung places would er ...steal the ideas. Multiple global patents are not a realistic method of protection.
Nevertheless, here's a partial list of past projects, ongoing projects and kits, all of which I like. Actually, in my opinion, some of these projects are among my best work. I can supply images if someone is keen to see more.
1. Star Module
A very simple cut/fold card modular unit which can lock together with others to make an infinite number of stellated polyhedra.
2. Cube Module
modular unit which can lock together with others to create cubes and connected cubes.
3. Lighting Design
A subtle and very versatile geometric cut/fold design in white polypropylene, from which ceiling, wall, table and floor lights can be made. This project is 3 years in development with a lighting engineer. If I may say (and everyone agrees!), the lights are exceptionally beautiful, lit or unlit.
4. Bird Kits
Cut/fold kits of
birds. They are quick to make and significantly simpler than their origami counterparts.
a) Pelican with opening and closing beak
b) Crane - developed from the traditional origami classic
