Fung and Bedford
< >

We are designers Angela Fung and Ashley Bedford. Working together since 2003, we have built a multi-disciplinary design practice where we explore the potential of folding through large-scale installations. Challenging the traditions of origami, our projects investigate the possibilities of manipulating humble paper and metallics, transforming them into architectural origami - modern installations, vessel sculpture and art for homes, galleries and commercial spaces.

Education
A bit of background...

Angela
I trained to be a concert pianist at the Royal College of Music but after getting RSI I turned to jewellery design, did a BA, and founded my jewellery line in 1999. I turned to origami as a way to focus and get through a difficult period in my personal life, I had no idea finding solace in folding would offer me a new direction for my creativity too.

Ashley
I’m a trained architect, but was made redundant and learned silver-smithing, a new joy. Angela & I met at One Year On. Our jewellery fed off each other’s ideas. In 2008 we were doing a window display for London Jewellery Week but our laser bed would not cut aluminium. We had to find an alternative. We chose Tyvek – it changed our art and our business.
