met now five years since the arrival of the Nissan Juke to the market. After the Nissan Qashqai, the Juke was one of the models in return to life a moribund Nissan european, quickly becoming, like his older brother, a precursor and a leader in its segment. In these five years have arrived many other models in the SUV-B segment, but the Nissan Juke remains one of the more personality they have.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the launch of the Nissan Juke, the british division of Nissan has decided to create a full-scale mock-up of Origami, this being the last work of the british artist Owen Gildersleeve. Taking as a base a skeleton of cardboard, the artist has patiently created a Nissan Juke of paper that looks very much like the more than 700,000 units of the model that already roll on european roads and that makes it the most sold in its segment.
Origami is an art of japanese origin in which it comes to make a sculpture with paper, by folding it with the hands and without the use of scissors, also known as origami. Recently Lexus has also carried out a similar job by creating a Lexus IS cardboard, and functional 1:1 scale.
To arrive at the spectacular result of the images, have been needed more than 200 hours of work and 2,000 pieces of paper of different colors. We have tried to get a model as faithful as possible to the real model, using paper with brightness for the headlights and pilots. Nor have omitted characteristic details, such as the various and peculiar shapes of the body of this SUV. This model is also a way of celebrating the Day World of Origami, which takes place between the 24 October and 11 November.
Darryl Scriven, design director of the european center of design of Nissan has compared this Nissan Juke of paper with the way in which all the cars come to life, that it is about a paper, hand-drawn.
