To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the popular Juke crossover, Nissan automaker decided to prepare something special and unveiled a full-scale Juke replica made entirely from Origami.
The origami car is made up of 2000 folded pieces of paper and is the result of the work of a British artist Owen Gildersleeve. He spent 200 hours to construct and feature all the key design elements of the Juke including its interestingly-shaped headlights and taillights as well as the sleek looking front grille.
Using so many individual pieces of paper to create the overall structure also represents the thousands of people who helped bring the Nissan Juke into reality. Besides, anyone should know that the first step of any car design involves putting pencil to paper. From that simple start, it’s a complex journey to production involving hundreds of skilled people, thousands of man-hours and millions in investment.
So Nissan thinks it's apt that on its fifth birthday, the Nissan Juke celebrates with a tribute that harks back to that simple, but bold, first step, all carried out with Nissan’s signature innovation and excitement of course.
