This is the logo of Apache Mesos (cluster management software) rendered in origami. A colleague at work suggested I try designing this object in origami after seeing my origami TensorFlow logo.

This object looks like a regular hexagon tiled into equilateral triangles but in reality the folded object is a cube with faces subdivided into squares with diagonal lines. It is the perspective illusion which makes one look like the other. Folded from my Building Block Units (BBU): 48 × A1 and 24 custom units for the walls with diagonal slits.
