At first sight you might see only octagons and squares in this corrugation. But, in my opinion, the interesting part is the small triangles placed pairwise in the squares’ corners. When the paper is relaxed, you can see S-shaped forms there, but when the model is squeezed, the triangles become more obvious and they look as if each pair was intersecting.

I used a grid for the design phase but then I cheated a little and drew the grid on the back side instead of folding it in order to get a cleaner look in the final model.
