Using traditional Japanese paper making techniques, Japanese designers Nendo have created three-dimensional lighting fixtures that are only half-formed with the wrinkle process. The wrinkles can be applied gradually so that the two different effects come together seamlessly. The wrinkles shrink the fixtures’ overall size, so we calculated backwards from the desired final size to create the starting form and size. This hybrid process created a new face for paper, one that combines the softness and tensility that only three-dimensional washi can display.
