Origami Ark Show room

Origami Ark or Sun Show Leather Pavilion is a showroom for Sansho leather manufacture in Himeji, Japan. The challenge was to create a space capable to show more than 3000 products in a very restrained area, and make the client understand the huge variety of products as he visits the showroom. The Origami Ark uses 83 small units of 1.5x1.5x2 m3 combined together irregularly to create a big three dimensional maze and provides the visitor and experience similar to exploring a jungle gym.
