Celebrating the fifth anniversary of the launch of Nissan Juke in Britain, the Japanese company’s UK branch has commissioned a life-size Origami replica of the car. The elaborate present from Nissan to itself took 200 hours to make and consists of 2,000 folded pieces of paper.

Created by British artist, Owen Gildersleeve, the Origami Nissan Juke also marks the ‘World Origami Days’ where it was revealed. It’s nice, but they better announce a recycling plan or something for this thing. Otherwise, green people are going to be pretty mad at Nissan for using 2,000 pieces of paper for fun, thus contributing to the ruination of the world’s forests.

Darryl Scriven, Design Manager at Nissan’s Design Centre for Europe, said: “The first step of any car design involves putting pencil to paper. From that simple start, it’s a complex journey to production involving hundreds of skilled people, thousands of man-hours and millions in investment. So we think it’s very apt that on its fifth birthday, we celebrate the Nissan Juke with a tribute that harks back to that simple, but bold, first step, all carried out with Nissan’s signature innovation and excitement of course.”
