huge origami elephant

I was never one to have the patience to deal with the tricky business of creating origami type art. That makes this work of art all the more incredible to me :-) A man named Sipho Mabona is in fact a professional origami artist that has taken the genre to a whole new level. By raising $26k from crowdfunding site Indiegogo, Mabona hired a team of more than 12 people to construct a life sized elephant made out of origami. Have a look!

Say What?!

Many things in the world are quite complicated. Your health, jobs, family, and money are a source of stress. That’s what makes Simplicity so beautiful.

That’s a reason why this Austrian artist’s creation is so wonderful. Klemens Torggler created his Evolution Door as an extension of his practice, but I want one. Now. He took something as simple as a door, deconstructed it even further and created something incredible.

It is a 4-panel entryway that looks surprisingly like a normal door… until you touch it.

The door then collapses smoothly, folding like origami.

Then, it reforms on the other side of the doorway.

Klemens calls his beautiful system a “flip panel door” (Drehplattentür). It’s technically considered kinetic art and a prototype, so you wouldn’t be able to buy one for your home just yet (although I’m completely certain I would). Watch the video below to see it in action:

Get me this door, NOW!
