    Paper Folding Experiments These paper folding experiments was used as a tool in design processes working with spatial surfaces. The different folding techniques create beautiful textures that can be made into ornaments on the often flat white surfaces in modern spaces. By doing this, it will be possible to create surfaces with a tactile feeling due to the shadows and contrasts of the tridimensional foldings. Imagine what these shapes could achieve in a bigger scale when molded in concrete… The paper folding below resulted in an idea for window coverings. By cutting and folding the paper so that it has both areas with a single layer of material, a double layer of material and cut-outs, the cover got different levels of transparency. Some squares are being lit up by the daylight due to its high level of transparency, other squares are left dark when not being lit up from inside. The window cover therefore has a high level of contrast during the daytime and seems less dramatic when only interacting with light from inside. Therefore the cover will have one pattern in the daytime and another in the night. Read Less
