Origami, is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. In the past few years this art have stirred the interest of a wider public like mathematicians and scientists, but fashion designers and architects as well. These people, experiment with various materials to design something, depending on their field of interest.The aim of this project is to study the origami techniques, but also to investigate how capable is cardboard as an efficient material for the application of the origami geometry to architecture and to product design. Is it possible to make folds with cardboard? Could the outcome of this folding procedure be a residence, a shelter or an armchair from cardboard?
The greatest part focuses in the study of origami application in the different ways of designing and formatting. Furthermore, there is a study of the cardboard possibilities, through his examples and applications, that practically prove the range of its cababilities. Worldwide, there are not a lot of applications, because the origami - cardboard combination is still under research. In this project, there are presented also a few of personal experiments of selective forms and drawings of origami on cardboard.
