I’m Leela Morimoto, a product designer with a passion for efficiency and organizing.
In the beginning there was origami. I’ve been folding for over 30 years. I started with cranes, houses, and balloons but over time I became enamored with modular origami and spent all of my free time folding to create every combination of shapes possible. This led me to my paper diamond, now my most popular line of jewelry.
Although Origami kickstarted my passion for design, all of my life experiences have led me to find a love of creating order and systems through form follows function design. Sometimes products don’t exist for exactly what you need, and that’s where my design and manufacturing expertise come into play!
My academic background is in Product Design with minors in Interior Architecture and Japanese. I studied abroad in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland – soaking up the design aesthetic and loving the simple and functional Scandinavian design.
