A new box, aptly named Her Majesty’s Box, taking shape on the train back from the 50th Anniversary Convention of British Origami Society. Both the convention and the sightseeing tour afterwards were very inspiring and I came back home with lots of new ideas. Thanks to everyone who attended my workshops or just stopped by to chat or fold together.

While I normally don’t publish pictures of work-in-progress, I thought in this case it would be interesting to compare the prototype to the clean fold I plan to make later (later update: here it is). The molecule has been on my mind for at least two weeks and it is related to Square Interlace Tessellation. Time on the train, bus and plane allowed me to test different arrangements of the molecules (this pattern can be tessellated) and to notice that when used on a box, the pleats form an interesting pattern which could be compared to the rods of a royal crown.
