Origami boxes and boxes


An origami box is something very simple but unique, which contains all the feeling of the person who packaged it. The satisfaction of using an object or donating it is added to the pleasure of folding paper, establishing a bond between those who create it and those who receive it. With a similar intent, Tomoko Fuse, a famous Japanese origamist, has created 20 original models exclusively for this volume with a wide variety of shapes, some very easy, others a little more complex, all achievable starting from a single sheet. The essential structure of the box is enriched, in many cases, by accessory elements - a reinforced bottom or a divider - to be folded with additional sheets. It will be fun to choose the most suitable paper by thinking about how the object will be used, or the places and people it is intended for.
