Designed by Ramón Esteve for Vibia, Origami is inspired by the traditional Japanese art of folding paper. The luminaire represents an avant-garde reimagining of the sconce with architectural cubes that transform a blank wall like a glowing art installation. Powered by an LED light source, Origami’s impact is enhanced by an ambient halo around each module.
With just two pieces, the dimensional cubes can be combined in countless personalisable compositions indoors or out. Read on for creative examples of Origami in myriad arrangements and settings.
On a wall next to a stairwell, Origami is displayed as a compositional pair. Two modules anchor the design, which pauses, then continues above with a grouping of three more pieces. The upward, two-part trajectory mirrors the separate sections of the staircase, while the glowing pieces conjure a constellation of stars in the night sky.
Another Origami by a stairwell features a connected quartet of cubes charting its own path upwards, its arcing course playing counterpoint to the stair’s steady, linear rise. The grey palette picks up the surrounding concrete and perfectly suits the space’s spare, architectural mood.
Along a walkway in an alfresco area, Origami graces an outdoor wall. Two nested modules occupy the center of the empty wall, creating a bold, artful accent that creates a focal point in the stark surface and generates an intriguing play of light and shadow for visual interest.
A minimalist living space features a striking Origami design above a sofa. The large installation spans the surface, its faceted cubes recalling an illuminated piece of jewelry. The geometric modules branch up and across at different angles, lending a look both structural and organic.
Origami also takes pride of place poolside. A large installation adorns an outdoor wall, its twisting, turning design doubling as mesmerizing wall art. The sprawling silhouette exudes a kinetic, freeform feel that offsets the rigorous rectangular profile of the pool and cantilevered ceiling.
