Nature of Material
Ran Amitai is part of new young Israeli design group Bakery Design . In this project, single sheets of aluminum are laser cut with fold lines that when folded, transforming the 2D sheet into an organic 3D form. Some areas are allowed to bend naturally in response to the specified fold lines, allowing organic curves to form. Those organic curves add to the structure of the form, creating a rigid surface from as few mechanical folds as possible.
