Smile at the Orange worldwide H.Q. 150m long parametric origami emerging from the entrance walls and opening them up to a gentle display of glowing, diffused and changing lights.
The sinuous yet mineral geometry is inspired by lava flows cracking open to reveal their inner warmth. The folds on the 4000 laser cut modules gave structural strength to the paper thin powder-coated zintec sheets.
The warm glow of molten lava opening up through a flowing origami river. This is what inspired our Smile at the Orange worldwide H.Q.
