2 Situation A cardboard manufacturing business has approached you to design a sustainable shelving system. Factories are being converted into warehouse style apartments. It seems this has become a new urban ideal to live and work in the central city areas. Problem Research of Japanese origami will be required to lead the design for an ‘adaptable’ shelving system which will be made specifically for small living spaces. The shelving system must be an integration of function and aesthetic design. It must be an innovative and stable design capable to withstand heavy items e.g books. This will require you to research existing works to investigate construction. It must be user interactive. Economically viable (cardboard only) Self-contained and flat packable There must be notations to state how the system either: A) Stands as a freestanding item B) Is supported to a wall or corner Experiment with different design approaches to generate interesting results. Use a range of presentation techniques to present your work. Specifications Task: Rethink the Shelf Problem

3 Requirements 1. Refer to your capture sheets to research the history of Japanese origami. Together we will highlight key words and phrases. 2. Follow the directions and construct the Barn Swallow origami. 3. On a A3 sheet, in the centre of your page, copy your completed origami model. Use the crosshatching rendering technique to show space, depth and line. Use media such as: ink pens, feltpens, watercolour pencils. 4. Produce a range of concepts and possible solutions. 5. Develop and refine a concept in answer to the design problem. 6. Produce illustrated drawings of your final design that accurately show your shelfing system. These will include: Orthographic projection drawings. Isometric drawings. Develop a professional presentation of this assignment for clients. This will include: Research, concepts and development of resolved design.

7 The History of Origami The origin of the art began as Chinese Paper Folding. The Japanese origin began in the 16 th century when Buddist monks from China carried paper to Japan. The Japanese words: ‘oru’ means fold, and ‘kamu’means paper. Until recently, all forms of paper folding were grouped under the word, origami.

25 Cardboard designs The designer Jason Iftakhar states, “Cardboard is such a versatile material. It’s cheap, can be packed flat and is lightweight, so energy expenditure in transportation is minimised.It can be printed on, laser cut, be waterproofed and made as fire retardant as other furniture. Projects like mine are part of the process of changing the public attitude to cardboard.”
