The Miniature World of Yusuke Oono

2012 was the first year of the You Fab awards; a contest honoring the best in laser cutter design ideas from around the world. 
Japanese designer Yusuke Oono took home an award for this little gem, a small book that opens into a 3D  journey in the round.


On winning the award Oono said:

I am so thrilled to have been selected as the winner of the Free Fab category for You Fab 2012. I like finding new ways to express dimension, and it occurred to me to create this palm-sized book that opens out to form a 3D world. I hope that everyone who opens the book enjoys it and is surprised by how the closed book dramatic transforms into a diorama.
