NASA researcher turned origami artist Robert Lang quit his scientific career almost 20 years ago to pursue his origami artistry full-time, creating classic nature-inspired designs in intricate detail.
Robert Lang’s origami designs have led to real-life folding patterns that fit satellite dishes and receiving arrays into cylindrical NASA rockets and made airbags in some car designs more compact, practical and safe. Now the California-based artist’s mind-blowing origami takes simple swans, frogs and other classic nature-inspired designs and adds intricately detailed layers.
His work combines aspects of the Western school of mathematical origami design with the Eastern emphasis upon line and form to yield models that are at once distinctive, elegant, and challenging to fold.
Robert Lang’s portfolio even includes mythical creatures including unicorns, dragons, and pegasuses.
