Ramin Razani’s Livre Anémomètre (Wind Gauge)

Jeff Rutzky sent me a photo and video of this wonderful design by Ramin Razani, which will be appearing in Rutzky’s upcoming book Kirigami (by Barnes and Noble Inc, 2007).

I’m a big fan of paper arts, not just origami- and we like to cut paper around our house, just as much as folding it. Ever since we picked up a CraftROBO a few months back there’s been a lot of time wastedwell spent on making paper architecture and other fun things.

I’m really looking forward to buying a copy of this book- the patterns I’ve seen so far are just excellent!

Check out Jeff’s Flickr stream for more kirigami goodness.

For this model by Razani, the best part is the action- I had no idea it would do this! So simple yet beautiful!

    I like it.Is there an instruction on how to make this?

    I really like to try my hands in making it.

    It has so much action and by open and closing the card the wind gauge spins in different direction.

    Is there a website for it?

  2. I do have 2 books of Ramin Razani and they do include the patterns.
    This one is hard to cut because of the circles … and the paper
    get’s weaker with every ring. There are many other realy excelent
    OA like patterns.
    The books I have are in german which would be of no harm as the patterns are clear enough. The book says it’s translated from french.

    I am a high school teacher of Arts subject here in Quezon City, Philippines. I am encouraging my students to love paper sculpture in a cheaper and practical way. Can you share to me your pattern? I would highly appreciate your kindness and your chance to share God’s ways in loving His creation including recycled papers. My email is Thanks and God bless!
