Coffee table 'Origami' by #barberinigunnell
Dim. 135 x 67 x h37 cm
The inspiration for ORIGAMI came from the observation of a simple piece of paper which, being folded a few times according to an antique Japanese technique, transforms into complex and delicate figures of innate fascination and beauty: the origami.
The idea starts off with the concept of taking advantage of the resistance of glass appreciating its optical lightness with the intent to unveil the similarity between the complex art of origami and the workmanship of glass showing its magic transparency.
Both, paper with its light sense of touch and opacity and glass with its physical heaviness and transparency present contrary features but have also a strong attribute in common: the concept of lightness.
The table ORIGAMI was created as a result of this theory.

Today we visited Modern Art Oxford and participated in a fantastic art session for pre schoolers. Lots of exploratory sensory fun.
We also loved the #hannahryggen exhibition. Incredibly beautiful tapestries with huge political and social punch. A fascinating artist.
