Colorful Origami Butterflies Represent Stages of Dreams

A flock of colorful origami butterflies flutter overhead in this installation, entitled Dream Colourfully, by Dream Interiors and Elixr. The collaborative piece was created for Saturday In Design, an annual event for the design community that alternates each year between Sydney and Melbourne. In 2011, the event extended for the first time to Singapore and so Dream Interiors, best known for their blend of eclectic and modern furniture collections approached Elixr, a boutique graphic design studio, to assist in this captivating display in their home city.

Each delicate creature is formed out of translucent paper, which allows light to pass through from every angle. Set against the stark white atmosphere of Dream Interiors, the aerial display comes to vibrant life above. According to the project description, each origami butterfly represents a dream in various stages, from “the emergence of an idea, to the idea being in transit, and then taking flight. Every butterfly has its own character and destination, but when flying together, new dreams are created and celebrated.”
