One of the most important characteristics of origami is that once you learn and understand how to fold and spread paper, you can apply those patterns to objects that are significantly different from the paper.

He tried several different folding methods that fit into a round and cylindrical rocket at work. He also developed a car airbag. When an engineer produces things in a controlled manner, you can use the origami folding pattern.

Traditional origami design is simple and usually requires 20 to 30 steps. His designs require dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of folding steps.

Robert Lang has commented on his unique origami designs.

The driving force for me is that I always want to challenge. New problem, new theme. I thought that I could not make it before, but now it is a new shape that shows how to realize it. You can taste that wonderful feeling when you solve a problem anytime.

What did you think?

It’s a lot of unexpectedly beautiful works that made from one piece of paper. There are truly unlimited possibilities when you begin folding from one sheet of paper!
