The inspiration comes from the geometrical elements in a folding technique and its dynamic characteristic, where it can expand, shrink, bend, and stiff. The unity between geometry and shape can be seen everywhere, where everything has a geometrical elements that interconnect within them and to others. The pleats remind of how vast the universe and represent the connection between distance, space, time, and universe with other universe, which can be folded instantly like a wormhole.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Ploi is a functional art that gives accents into the room. The combination between folding techniques and wire gauze produce a sequence of translucent crease lines that composed harmoniously and give more volume to the shape as it expand and shrink. The asymmetrical abstract shape creates variety; it gives different monumental shape that can be seen in each side and produce different dramatic light too.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Trial and error was conducted to understand the characteristic of pleats and the possible shape that can be created. Experiments start from paper creating symmetrical and asymmetrical shape, then applied into other material that can be folded easily like paper, such as plastic, cloth, and wire gauze. From the experiment, wire gauze was the easiest to fold and strong enough compare to other materials. The combination between technique and material gives many possibilities of shape to be explored and function to be created.
