Professional origami artist doesn’t always have to be Japanese. Sipho Mabona is a Swiss origami master who has designed origami for Japanese major companies’ promotion movies.
The video below is a promotion video for ASICS, a Japanese athletic equipment company. It is a stop-motion animation using Mabona’s origami works.
“Origami in the Pursuit of Perfection”
He also worked for Toshiba’s videos.
His origami works are three-dimensional and has a lot of curvy lines. They are beautiful and have organic, warm feeling.
Let’s look at more! 😛
Here is koi fish (carp).
“The making of an origami Koi in stop motion (origami animation)”
And fugu (blowfish)…
I wonder if it is made of a sheet of paper too.
This is JAPAN Style!
