I designed this model during a stop while trekking in the Sudetes mountain range in the summer of 2022, as you can see in the picture of the prototype. A few months later, I folded a complete tessellation. The molecule is quite simple (modified hex twist with two sinks) but produces an interesting pattern. You can rotate each molecule independently, so various arrangements are possible. Apart from the “linear” arrangement shown here, you can also place the kites in a “radial” pattern. Modifying the spacing can also affect the looks quite a bit. In particular, a very dense layout with no free spaces between molecules should be interesting, but will be really challenging to fold.
