It took 2 months and a half (around 200 hours of work) for Eduardo Tavares to complete this huge origami mosaic of 3479 paper pixels with the Gfi (the company Eduardo works for) logo.
To this date, this Gfi logo mosaic is the biggest single piece origami mosaic made with the origami pixels.
In September my company sent an email to everyone saying: this year we want to do something different. We want to do a Gfi got Talent. Do, you guys that know how to sing, dance, play, etc, send us a video of what you do so we can make a selection. And I answered it with a link to my facebook origami page. End of october got another mail: Bravo! You got selected. The 17th and 18th january you'll have to come to Paris. I'm from Portugal. And they asked if I could do something representing or alluding to the Gfi logo. Two and a half months later and around 200 hours of work, that was the end result. My thought when I answered the mail was: they'll never select me.... Famous last words! It was really a lot of work. But really worth it. The people reactions were incredible!

Origami Pixels is a new fun and easy way to make origami tiles that can be joined by folding (no cut, no glue, not tape) to compose beautiful origami mosaics. This type of origami pixels was invented by 2017 by Stéphane Gigandet, and other types have been designed before. The Origami Pixel Unit page tells more about the history of origami pixels and shows how to fold them and join them.
