THIS IS THE LAST DAY FOR SUBMISSIONS!
Andrey Ermakov from LoveOrigami made his: EGG-BOX
8 in. X 2 ft.
This model is very useful in practical application - has many variations and it is very easy to prepare.
Very often we are faced with the problem of carrying and storing objects of round shape. Every now and then they lost, or as the eggs - crush, etc. So, this origami-box is easier to help overcome these troubles. Assembling the model does not require deep skills and expertise in origami, everyone can fold it. Box size depends only on the size of the cell and how many partitions you need inside ("a" x "b", and - the number of horizontal sections, b - number of sections in the vertical) ...
I note that the move in this box can not only eggs, it could be tennis balls, golf balls, billiard balls, etc.
The box has good shock absorption, since cell sections are in limbo. Therefore, based on the properties of the prepared material (paper), it may be indispensable for transporting fragile items of glass, crystal, china porcelain - glasses, cups, etc.

Ekaterina, who is helping with the Russian forums in the challenge, IS fully participating with the challenge with this model. We talked it over between the four us and made that decision. Best of luck Ekaterina!
Using this simple device you can change the whole appearance of your interior. Just 30 simple units can add romance to the room. Very suitable as night lamps, for cafés or restaurants.
Can be used with power-saving lamps (or with any other not very hot lamps). Just put the lamp inside the modular and turn it on. Some areas of the modular show only one layer of the paper, so it will be a very bright lamp.
Made of 30 rectangles of semi-transparent crisp paper, approx. 4 X 5 in. each. The final size of the model is 8 in.Lamp for the challenge

--Other paper proportions and sizes can also be used successfully
--Each unit is made with only 14 folds, so not only paper but very thick materials can be used for this modular.
--The folds can be easily made with special grooving equipment, so half-finished pieces for this modular can be produced industrially.
--You can make other geometrical forms: non-symmetrical or more complex.
--Units hold together very securely without any glue.
--Due to the possibility of the industrial production, you can use these units as the construction set for children or their parents
--The lamp can be easily disassembled and transported as the set of flat pieces. Assembly and disassembly don’t affect the units badly.
Actually I didn’t have enough proper paper to make it big enough to be compatible with my lamp (my lamp is big), so I had to make “lighted” pictures without being closed behind the lamp. But I guarantee that, with smaller lamps or with bigger units, the lampshade can be completely closed.
Thanks to organizers of the challenge, cause it forced me finally to make this lamp!
