A Greek meander pattern folded as modular origami. The bent frame technique is the “Thoki Yenn style” which I also employed in a number of other models, for example in [Modular Picture Frame]/models/modular-picture-frame.

Each of the five full loops of the curve is a single unit, folded from a 1:5 rectangle, so that the whole model can be made from five pieces cut from a single square. Of course, it is possible to add as many units as required to make a longer model.

In theory, one could fold the whole thing (or even arbitrarily many turns of the curve) from a single long strip of paper, but such long strips are not very practical to fold with. For those who do not like even 1:5 ratio paper, it is possible to make each segment a separate unit, thus exchanging the ease of folding for much more measuring and cutting.
