Interview with Ana Morgado and Maria do Carmo Caldeira from Orikomi

By Alize Menendez January 25, 2018 No comments

Orikomi was born in 2013 when architects Ana Morgado and Maria do Carmo Caldeira took an interest in oragami and found a way to develop practical pieces of lighting using this technique.
