This origami flasher snaps into a hyperbolic paraboloid when unfurled. The center is based on a set of twists similar to those used in the Pythagorean Tiling family of designs. It can be a way of achieving a hypar shape alternative to the classic hypar design. Both sides are a little different: this model is not iso-area. When fully compressed, the flasher becomes much smaller, with a small “bowl” in the center surrounded by thick walls made from folded layers of the remaining paper.

This design is quite similar to Simple Flasher Labyrinth by Jeremy Shafer — see this comment on FB.
