Crafting a life size origami car with Owen Gildersleeve
to celebrate 5 years of the Nissan Juke.

In the lead up to the Nissan Juke's 5th Birthday, we were approached by London based paper and craft artist, Owen Gildersleeve, to help him build a life size origami inspired paper car.

We worked closely with Owen offering guidance and expertise on production specifications and machine capabilities. One of the biggest hurdles was to ensure complete alignment of specialist cutting and creasing on all materials, before they went into production.

The flat form paper model was delivered to Owen and his team, who spent over 200 hours carefully assembling the model which when complete comprised of approximately 2000 separate folded polygons. Working alongside Owen was model maker Thomas Forsyth who produced digital CAD drawings of the internal framework on which the paper shell was then built. See video below for project delivery.
