My older brother Kaleem and I have always been a bit obsessed with origami and mobiles. Every time there’s a Calder exhibit, we’re there. And as kids we always had origami kits handy. The Hexrug I posted about yesterday reminded me of this rad sculpture Kaleem made a year ago, which led me to an idea…why not mix mobiles and origami! I’m clearly not the first person to think this idea up, but with my brother’s insane paper folding abilities and my design background, I’m thinking we can come up with something great for the nursery. Handmade, homemade, geometric and yet organic.
