Paper Lanterns for Design geeks: Origami

Animal paper-lamps are the products of  OWL  design outfit, a design brand created in 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal.Inspired by the origami art of folding paper figures, OWL combined modelling with illumination to design original papercraft lamps.

The lamps are built to catch the eyes, and to stand out in a room; whether lit or turned off. Citing the producers:

“We invite you to join the process and build your own model, as all OWL paperlamps consist of a DIY kit with everything you need to assemble our designs. We prepare the challenge, you accomplish it. We hope you enjoy our OWL paperlamps as much as we do. If you have any difficulty, you can always contact us and we’ll try to give you our best support.”

We ordered some of them, a great addition to the reading room or the pantry (room).  Check out some of OWL’s designs below.

Colorful Theme for “dO what you love” music video

Musical video videos are forms of expression art. They are  playful , vibrant , but most times put out to pass a message. But rarely are they used in purely design capacity as done by  Truc vo.

They video / Art Project  ” Do what you love Music video –  encourages girls to do what they love the way they love, even when they sleep. This music video shows girls expressing themselves in very vibrant, graphic, girly way. All the sets were build with hands in short time for two days stop motion shooting.”

The beautiful art project was created by saigon based design collective Vo nguyen ( With tien vo as  creative director and Truc vo as  designer of the verious set used ) .

The video uses stop motion – an animation technique that captures a series of individual frames in order to create the illusion of movement. this effect adds a playful DIY aesthetic, using moving props against the actions of the singer, to help illustrate a series of themes within the short clip.

Below are some of the snippets from the project, check out their site for the complete work:

Zaha hadid’s Melbourne Towers : Miss or hit

The Zaha hadid’s tower is arguably the most debated building in Victoria right now. The firm’s first project in Melbourne, the tower is to be sited on ‘600 collins street on the western boundary.

54 storey tower comprises 420 apartments, offices, retail and public spaces, with the overall arrangement characterized by its elegant colonnades of ‘stacked vases’. Designboom

‘it’s pleasing to see a project of this quality proposed for melbourne and see a strong architectural response within the framework of the interim controls,’ says planning minister richard wynne.

But for most residents  of Melbourne the proposed tower is a monstrosity.A travesty  to the beautiful order of buildings in Victoria. The most complaints are about her style of architecture, which is said will be a misfit with the current facade of the Melbourne CBD. But that didn’t  stop city planners as the  building construction was recently greenlited.

The tower would come with the least green ideas in building construction. With savings to energy, water ( which there is a serious shortage of  here) and a reduced carbon footprint.  It would carry 350 bicycle parking spaces and bays for electric vehicles are included within the planning. Below are the design photo. what do you think?  Most of us at Ausquery  think it is a good idea, Leave your comments below.
