Inspiration for my Next Project

It is my second week in The Malthouse Design Centre and I am already full of inspiration for my next design project. I have always been intrigued by the 3 dimensional forms and structures which 2 dimensional flat sheet material has the ability to become. This was the basis behind the collection of furniture I designed and made for my final year Design Thesis.
From simplistic Geometrical forms to Origami, Kirigami and Sliceforms, having the ability to create a form from flat sheet material creates structures which appear complex but in essence are quiet simple in design, contsruction and structure. Through this approach of creating form, a curiosity and interest in design is created for the viewer. Below are some of the most inspirational scupltures and structures designed and created using this approach.
