“When you repeat the same action day after day, hour after hour, you will eventually be

the best in what you do ” – Sukiyabashi Jiro

Hi, I would like to introduce myself, Moran Alhalel Meiri, a product designer with a degree in Design from Shankar University, and owner of my own design studio since 2012.  I chose origami to be the essence of my work, with my specialization being in fabric origami.  In my studio and in my shop you can find works from paper as well as a large selection of pieces from fabrics for all ages.

As a mother, I understand that the beautiful objects we buy are first and foremost for ourselves, the children are just an excuse.  Don’t be surprised if the mobile you bought for your friend as a baby gift, will be seen hanging in the living room or in the parent’s bedroom.

I love working with different materials, rediscovering them and integrating them in my projects.  Using classic origami designs and changing them into modern creations are at the heart of my craft.  The bond between the materials, the color and the shape give life to the piece, and make it suitable for little ones as well as adults.  The choice of combining mass production and manual labor allows for full attention to the fine details, which results in the products being similar while at the same time having their own unique features.

This is how the mobiles were first conceived which fostered my interest in the research of origami of fabric and other materials.  The choice of folds, shape, and materials combined with my working method as well as choosing the balsa wood as a hanger, led to the mobiles being targeted towards baby and child rooms.  The magic of origami is what draws in children and myself, making it always appealing and never boring.

Using natural balsa wood and cotton fabric allows to feel the product without damaging it.  Connecting the origami piece to the hanger by laundry clips allows for exploring the imagination with many possibilities to renew and modify the product.  This gives children the freedom to integrate their own creations into the mobile.

In my opinion, a product starts with the lure of a material or an idea that pops into your head and continues with trial and error, always searching for perfection and eventually ends when it is packaged and ready for display.  The packaging and the way the product is presented to the customer has a very important impact, and they are an essential part of the product itself.  Specifically with origami there is something special and esthetically unique, and I’m using this method many times in packing and graphics and in integration with new products.

Recently, I watched a program about Sukiyabashi Jiro, who owns that first sushi bar in Tokyo to win three Michilian stars.  He is 86 years old, and all his life he made sushi every single day!  He is very accurate in the sushi size, shape and quality, and he adjusts the portions to the customer without the customer realizing that the dish was made especially for him.

Like him, my goal is to be the best at what I do, knowing what material to use, and by going back and forth until the product is brought to perfection.  Therefore, in each new series that I create, I’m perfecting myself more and more, learning and improving each time again and again.

In the last couple of years, I deal with decorations for events.  Using elements from fabrics and paper with various folding techniques add interest to the event.  I’m also involved in table arrangement, wall decoration, reception, and more…

And to end the presentation!  A variety of origami workshops for children and adults, in which I offer the enjoyable experience of learning the origami folding techniques as well as learning the origami terminologies.

My logo (the crane bird): In Shinto, there is a special significance in the folding of the crane.  The crane symbolizes the fulfillment of wishes, success, and health, and according to tradition, the folding of a thousand cranes allows a wish to come true.  So start folding, and if you don’t know where to begin, just give me a call and we’ll meet.
