Pleated Rhombus Twists Origami Tessellation


Came up with this configuration just screwing around with rhombus twists. When I first started mapping it out, I wasn't sure exactly where I could go with it, but I was sure I could take it somewhere meaningful.

A little more fiddling later and the pattern coalesced. 

It's rhombus twists around a hexagon, but they are a little different in that they overlap one another. Thus creating a different repeating pattern. 

In order to flatly repeat the central idea, some triangle twists were necessary.

From there, it was the simple matter of execution. 



It was only mildly tricky to fold. 

Thin paper worked just fine.
