Life is a voyage.

Collapsible structures reflect how our world is constantly changing. My response is to use folding as part of my design process.

A particular folding technique can transform simple sheet materials into three-dimensional objects, with the additional capability that they can expand and contract. A dress which changes its shape according to the movement of the body, an expandable bag and an umbrella are all made of Tyvek®, a lightweight water- and tear-proof synthetic paper. The project celebrates the beauty to be found between geometry, transformation and play. Their elegance, efficiency and beauty enhances my life on the move.

Bon voyage.
