This is one of Fujimoto’s famous translucent designs — tessellations designed to be viewed in back-light. Fujimoto folded them using thinner paper than the Kirabiki used here, so in his pictures the contrast between the stars and the background is higher. Interestingly, even in back light, the model’s look differs quite a bit between the two sides.

This design does not seem to have any unique name in Fujimoto’s books — the name Star Tessellation is mine.
