Erik Demaine’s explorations into folding and mathematics have produces some astounding results that may inform future fabrication techniques. The majority of today’s fabrication industry has been streamlined into production from flat stock. Demaine’s methods of folding to produce intricately curved, non-deformational surfaces could provide answers to fabricators seeking to move beyond flat sheets without having to invent a completely new mode of fabrication.
