Conductive Origami


Advisor: Regev Dori

A series of lighting fixtures 3D printed directly onto textiles. Rigid printing on textile allows the creation of complex elements. When the printed material conducts electricity, the intersections that stem from the art of origami present a new opportunity – turning on the light by contracting and stretching the structure. The conductive filament is also used as the structural skeleton of the lighting fixtures, each with its own unique folding and opening method.
