This attractive variation on the traditional origami version of the Japanese “masu” box by Makoto Yamaguchi appeared in Origami Tanteidan Magazine issue 159 (Sept. 2016.)
Always a sucker for boxes, I couldn’t resist trying this one. The top and bottom are a traditional box design; what’s fun here is the carefully designed insert which makes the box larger, and creates the opportunity to have a contrasting paper show. Very nice!
Mr. Yamaguchi – manager of Gallery Origami House, which publishes the Tanteidan Magazine for JOAS – also has been instrumental in supporting and expanding World Origami Days, as well as so many other origami projects, including writing countless books on origami, overseeing the publication of the Tanteidan Convention books and OrigamiHouse books, organizing the post-earthquake relief project “Origami Caravan,” and others.
