The design of this project is to explore an interactive origami light that transforms its shape in the user's hand and creates light patterns depending on the form. It aims to create a playful, poetic interface that evokes user creativity through interaction. Recently, a growing number of designers and researchers have been delving into new flexible, organic interfaces that invite users into the ubiquitous computing world with an intuitive and sensory-rich experience. Tessella, an interactive origami light, explores key themes of current organic user interface research. First, input and output are integrated in one. Second, the form implies its function. Thirdly, it allows the user to discover its affordances and uses. Tessella is arranged as a matrix of light and sensors on a flexible tessellated structure.
