The principle of origami or Japanese paper folding is now also being used in engineering constructions and home furniture. One fine example is the exotic and elegant Origami Coffee Table. It is an original design by Martin Pitonak, a design professional based in Toronto who has over ten years of solid experience in custom furniture and custom mill-work. Origami coffee table is made of different kinds of solid wood based on the customer’s preference and working budget. The 42” x 42” glass top is fastened on the origami shaped wood with two metal stand offs.
The client can choose the material to be used to keep the price within the budget plan. Light wood materials such as cherry wood can be used for more affordable products. As a dedicated woodworking professional, Martin completes each design meticulously from choosing the materials, cutting and gluing process up to assembly. Origami requires precision and professional touch especially that glass hardware is used with the wood. Design ideas from customers are also welcome and given considerations.[Photos and information sent via e-mail by designer Martin Pitonak]
