|Ciara O'Neill's designs at Liberty|
Swedish designer Lukas Dahlen constructs his metal Ori lamps by a method of photo-etching which scores the metal, allowing him to fold it into these beautiful shapes. The addition of the gold underneath reflects the light back downwards. Just gorgeous.

My absolute favourites and indeed the most simple-because they are made of paper, are by Dutch designers Nellianna and Kenneth aka Studio Snowpuppe. As a trained architect and industrial designer you can see how their skills combine well to create their pieces. Each one is folded by hand and comes in a range of muted and bright colours. I recommend browsing their Etsy store if you're considering a purchase!

I'm feeling inspired to try and make my own...although maybe I'm biting off more than I can chew? Perhaps it's better that I start small and work my way up to save on tantrums!
What do you think of the origami trend?
