Beautiful Origami Art Made in Luzern

Scissors and glue are two items which cannot be found in Sipho Mabona's studio in Luzern, Switzerland. Because this artist was born with a natural gift which requires no tools other than his fingers: Paper folding.

At the age of five, he folded his first paper airplane. In 2000, after having folded airplanes for fifteen years, destiny finally called: Mabona ran out of paper airplane designs! This is when he turned to origami in hopes that it would inspire him to come up with something more original.

The rest is history, as they say. Since then, Mabona has participated in numerous contests, like the Red Bull Paper Wings World Finals, has designed origami for a corporate movie, and has exhibited his work in galleries from Tokyo to Vancouver.

So take a look at our selection of Sipho Mabona's work and we will guarantee that you will be swept away by his unique style!
