Creative duo Angela Fung and Ashely Bedford are best known for challenging conventions and pushing the possibilities of fibres and paper. They want to change the public perception of origami and create exceptionally beautiful, large scale origami inspired installations, which they call Architectural Origami, a term they coined.

The duo have a background in architecture, jewellery and origami (self taught), and make artworks for commercial and interior projects. In their Sussex studio, they predominantly use Tyvek - a 100% recyclable, waterproof, tear proof and sustainable man-made material with all the beautiful qualities of paper - to infuse calm, serenity and beauty into 21st century environments.
