Folding and collapsible objects have been an interest of mine for a while now. As a child, the discovery of the Hoberman sphere at the local toy store was a life changing moment of pure awe. It combined my interest in geometry with a new technological twist. The study of leaf and map folding soon followed.
Making something flat 3d, and making something 3d flat- this is something that is both challenging and useful.
I wonder if there is a reason to redesign something that is already so well thought out and developed.
