#Gomodular day 7 – Lobster Quadrille by Rob Foord

Diagrams for the model are here

This model by Rob Foord takes advantage of the geometry of the silver rectangle (A4 paper proportions) to make a fractal, recursive design. Each easy to fold unit is smaller than the preceding one, and fits perfectly.

We love that folding a unit is so simple – just 5 easy steps, cutting the next module from the left over paper is easy, and the units lock strongly together.

Taking it further: As always with Rob’s models he gives us lots of ways to realise different designs, from the simple spiral “claw” that gives the model its name to the 4 section Quadrille, and even a variation that uses 8 claws!
