In my industrial design class, we were learning how to think about forms. We first had an exercise in class to take a 8.5x11 sheet of paper and give it form. I've always folded origami shapes as a hobby, recently taking an interest in polyhedrons. I've always been interested in origami tessellations and motifs. I was inspired by Jawbone's simplicity in shape while leveraging texture in the form.
After class we were assigned to make some sketches of a lamp that we would like to make out of paper.
