Who am I? I’m a designer, first and foremost. My goal is to create as much as I can by prototyping. I work best with my hands, and I’ve always been better at creating then drawing.
I have been folding Origami for over 20 years – being raised in both Japan and Hawai’i has shaped and formed who I am today. Origami has been a kind of relaxation for me my entire life, and only recently did I discover that I enjoyed wearing my work rather than simply displaying it! Although folding paper is how I originally started LeeMo, my personal exploration of digital fabrication has expanded the way that I approach modular origami. View these here: www.leelamorimoto.com
Folding will always be a passion for me, but I never want to forget how it all started: a little girl and a package of paper.
