Origami is done with paper but seems like it can be done on bikes too! Designers Artem Smirnov of Belarus and Vladimir Panchenko of Ukraine decided to get together to work on a motorcycle design to serve as a traditional Japanese art forms.  Their concept, namely the Samurai, is inspired by the Zen aesthetic principles.

“The Japanese approach to design has always been original, which is the foundation of culture with its art of origami and the samurai spirit,” they said as quoted from sources.

“The simplicity and sense of space today are recognized in the industrial design of the Japanese brands. But for some reason, this approach is now rarely used in the design of Japanese cars and motorcycles.”
