Digital Origami Tigers head to Singapore

Crouching giant digital tigers head for Singapore


Two giant digital tigers are in Singapore as part of the Smart Light Festival on 15 October until end November 2010.


Earlier this year they ushered in the Chinese New Year at Customs House Sydney, created a roar at KL design week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in May and launched the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF) for their international Year of the Tiger campaign at Hauptbahnhof, Berlin’s central station. The giant digital origami tigers fuse ancient lantern making methods with cutting edge design and fabrication technology, bringing tradition and innovation, east and west together. The crouching tigers were designed by multinational architectural practice LAVA with Jennifer Kwok , Customs House Sydney, and are the size of a truck at 2.5 metres high and 7 metres long, yet weigh only 200kgs. Made of fully recyclable materials, aluminium and barrisol, the big cats are brought to life with low energy LED lighting. Photos: David Biene
