I came up with this design due to folding lots of stars by Shuzo Fujimoto recently. Since this is not the first time new ideas pop up based on his works (think Hydringea by Robin Scholz, When Rebecca met Shuzo by Robert Lang, Watering Fujimoto’s Garden by Chris Palmer, and a few designs by yours truly as well), I suggest we introduce a new hashtag, #InspiredByFujimoto for marking such designs.

The molecule in the center of the star can be tessellated. Since pleats in the back can be made symmetric, one can rotate each individual symbol in 60° intervals, independently of other molecules.
